Cinema One Originals presents Kuwentong UPCAT
Cinema One Originals’ winning film UPCAT screens at the Indiesine of the Robinsons Galleria from June 10 to 16.
Directed by Carlo Roman Olivarez in a screenplay by Inna Miren Salazar and Alfred Geoffrey Reyes, UPCAT stars Bembol Roco, Mark Gil, Felix Roco, Joseph Roble, Hiyasmin “Yas” Neri and Malou Crisologo.
Carrying the catchline “Ito ang kuwento ng mga Sukatan, Pasikatan at Shaded Circles. Ito ang Kuwentong UPCAT ni Lucas,” the State University’s famous college entrance exam acronym this time becomes a coming-of-age melodrama that shows the dreams and aspirations, hopes and fears and the roads in the academe teens take to make it in college. UPCAT follows the personal journey and growth of two high school seniors and buddies who believe passing the UPCAT will be a passport to their dreams.
One of the finalists in the 2008 Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival, UPCAT garnered support in its screening at the UP Film Institute Theater in Diliman Campus following the awards nights in November last year. It also became the festival’s top-grosser in its December screening. The Happy Endings Film production is juxtaposed with the background music of Raimund Marasigan. UPCAT was acclaimed by students and professionals.
UPCAT at the IndieSine of the Robinsons Galleria is part of the continuing celebration of Cinema One’s 15 years of leadership in the local cable viewing arena.
