Coming from this year's Cinemalaya16, the team behind the short film "Ang Gasgas na Plaka ni Lolo Bert" is going beyond the screen with its tote bag for a cause. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Save San Roque Alliance - a broad alliance advocating for the decent and pro-housing rights of Sitio San Roque, an urban poor community embattled in development aggression.
One of the 10 Cinemalaya Short Films in the competition this year, the story revolves around a closeted gay man in his 60s who has been living with HIV for 10 years. His monotonous life takes a sudden turn when he receives an old vinyl record from his dead ex-lover.
Cheska Marfori and Janina Gacosta, directors of the short film "Ang Gasgas na Plaka ni Lolo Robert" believe that as a storyteller, it is our responsibility to push narratives about people whose voices are suppressed by society. It is important to challenge these thoughts, condemn hate, and transform them into love and acceptance. "
