Watch out for Panoramanila Pictures' next offering coming in February 2012. Shot entirely in Puerto Princesa, Madaling Araw, Mahabang Gabi is an exciting film that shows how young people takes the challenge of facing the consequences of their decisions.
The film features a stellar cast that includes Angelica Panganiban, Kean Cipriano, Glaiza de Castro and Rocco Nacino, among others
Here's a story synopsis by the film's director himself, Sir Dante Nico Garcia, along with Sir Nicolas B. Pichay.
It is a place far away from the center of things.
At its core: the entangled stories of a group of young people who happen to be in a bar in Cuyo Palawan on the eve of All Souls’ Day. As midnight approaches, we become complicit as each of them takes the challenge of the Pangangaluluwa, a seemingly innocent Palawan tradition of honoring the dead by stealing something from the living. A young guitarist battles with crabs; an Arab gets caught in a crossfire; a grandmother hippie meets her match; Cosplayers battle for road supremacy; a religious man finds true faith in a strange kiss; and a bartender prepares a drink that results in the most bitter of brews. The movie holds up a mirror to this dark night and bear witness to the inevitable consequences that mark the choices of the young.
Watch out for this in February 2012 and treat yourselves to an exciting Valentine's!
