Last Friday , May 1, 2015, Labor Day, NUVALI, in partnership with Cinema One, brings the NUVALI Night Sky Cinema, an entertaining outdoor film-viewing event that gathers friends and loved ones to an open-air, free to the public festival-like movie experience unlike no other.
It was on the middle of the day , 3PM when we together with my Mommy blogger friends with their kids arrived and see how people wanted to enjoy the day even under the rays of the Sun. This is one of a kind of experience which they are doing once a year and it was full of children and parents whose main objective is to make their family bonding more fun and entertaining.
Aside from movies and multiple band guests are some of the plays that a child would want to experience and soaked in.
Listen to live music acts, from the likes of Up Dharma Down and other popular local artists such as: Jason Dy and Kai Honassan of the The Voice, Moonstar 88 and The Ransom Collective. Join, too, in other fun activities such as kite flying, and giant playgrounds, food trucks, and so on.
This time around, the NUVALI Night Sky Cinema offers three brand-new selections from both the local and international scene, designed to celebrate love, life, and everything in between.
Leading the three movies is the highly successful That Thing Called Tadhana, the hugot-filled film responsible for reviving Sagada sabbaticals and the Whitney Houston hit, “Where Do Broken Hearts Go?”
The Cinema One Originals film, starring Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman, and directed by Antoinette Jadaone, is the down-to-earth story of Mace Castillo and Anthony Lagdameo, two people in the wake of their respective breakups, their spontaneous journey north to Baguio and Sagada, and their conversations and insights on life and love along the way.
Following this is the comedy-drama-musical Begin Again, starring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley, and directed by John Carney of Once fame.
The film, which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song (Lost Stars), follows Gretta James, a songwriter, and Dan Mulligan, a record label executive, whose lives become intertwined through their common passion for music, their collaboration blooming into a renewed love for music and life. Concerts and recording sessions are set in different rooftops, basements and alleyways around New York City, which provide a warm backdrop to the music produced by the duo.
Last but not least among the three is the Siege Ledesma-helmedShift, another Cinema One Originals film, which explores thoughts on friendship, gender, and love.
The film, starring Yeng Constantino and Felix Roco, tells the tale of Estela, a call center agent whose relationship with her co-worker Trevor, becomes a complicated mass of emotions when she finds out he, the object of her affections, turns out to be gay. Amidst the confusion is a story of youth and its struggles: decisions, career, relationships, anxieties, and so on.
The NUVALI Night Sky Cinema, first launched in 2013, is an outdoor screening event that highlights NUVALI’s vision of bringing people together, in wide spaces and under the open sky, for fun activities that are best enjoyed within and around nature.
