I have above the teaser video of “Ploning” which was written and will soon be directed by my friend Angga Garcia in Cuyo in January. The film’s inspired by the fact that Angga’s Cuyunon and he wants to show the world his birthplace because he’s proud of it and its unique culture and traditions.
The first time I saw this teaser video was at cuyopress.com — a website started by Mandy Perez a.k.a. Banbanen for Cuyunons living all over the world. Angga had placed it there in the hope of encouraging all Cuyunons to be proud of their roots, their customs and traditions that are truly exceptional.
I have a copy of the first and second scripts, and I’ve started reading them. But because I was busy the past few weeks, I didn’t understand a single of what I’ve read. It’s embarrassing, I know!
Anyway, I promise to get back with a few of my thoughts after reading them again in the following days. In the meantime, relax and enjoy the video.
