Si Dante at si Max

Last December 17, 2015 ,  I was invited to witness four of the films by Dir.  Brillante Mendoza, a world renowned  and awarded director in collaboration with Max's Restaurant , happened at SM Aura Cinema ,which took them years of doing some researches , annotations , having to see the real moves of the business in particular the employees that makes it more significant, and of course making the film more relevant with regards to when and what kind of generation the event did happened on its real time.

This 4 short films are one of the most  traditional films I see which clearly described the kind of era and Filipino customs we had depending on the time where this people engaged in their real life stories.

In the first short film, Tagpuan, Mendoza tackles how true love transcends the test of time: An elderly woman faithfully shares her special birthday meal to the love of her life in their unlikely tagpuan. Debut, the second short film, shows a father’s love to both his only daughter and departed wife. Direk Dante showed that in spite of living a simple life, celebrating milestones is always and forever will be special. The third film, on the other hand, inspires every broken-hearted women to keep the faith despite bitter love stories. Entitled Kasal, this story features a waitress who called off her engagement and is having a hard time trying not to think about her growing pains as she works for a wedding banquet. To cap the night off, Direk Dante’s Delivery showcases street sounds and the Filipino’s innate affinity to the performing arts through a humble production featuring rap and dance numbers. 

Si Dante At Si Max’s is a call for Filipinos and the world to keep on finding beauty in everyday life. Indeed, Direk Dante has yet again brought the bright brillante to the whole house that night. As a tribute to the Philippine indie film icon, a surprise video was released as a testament to his exemplary work and his light-hearted way of living. 

This exclusive and intimate meet and greet was graced by Direk Dante’s friends, special guests and avid film viewers. This is event is made possible through a partnership with SM Aura Cinema.  The four short films will be released digitally some time in 2016.
