About the Film:
Directed by Benito Bautista, Philippines, 2012, 104 mins.
The art of harana—a fast-fading tradition of Filipino serenading—is brought to light in this award-winning documentary from Benito Bautista, whose film Boundary we showcased in last year’s festival. When Florante Aguilar, a classically trained guitarist, returns to the Philippines for the first time in 12 years, he discovers three of the last remaining harana masters: a farmer, a fisherman, and a tricycle driver. In an effort to capture and preserve their melodies and stories, Aguilar asks them to travel with him to perform and record these unheralded songs. As Aguilar and the three haranistas captivate audiences in small villages and prestigious concert halls, the men connect deeply with the past and with one another. Winner: Halekulani Golden Orchid Award, Hawaii International Film Festival; Audience Awards at CAAMFest, Pusan International Film Festival, Dubai International Film Festival, Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival
