RIP Alexis Tioseco (1981-2009) September 1, 2009

Posted by Richard Bolisay in RIP.


We lost a brave warrior with a warm soul. We lost a colleague who, in pursuit of every important argument in Philippine cinema, hopes for all its betterment. But everything you did stays. Everything you did will be here forever. In memory of you, we shall continue. This morning reeks of sadness – -the painful sadness that will always be remembered.

Alexis, you are sorely missed. You are sorely missed. You are sorely missed.

heard about it just now from the evening news. saddening… i don’t know what to think. things just happen when you don’t expect it and to those whom you do not expect it to happen to…
P.S. So the misfortune took place on September 1st?

I cannot bear this news. i was hoping to get an answer for my comment (Aug 30 [http://alexistioseco.wordpress.com/2009/08/29/dear-film-development-council-of-the-philippines/#comment-369]) on his latest blog entry and after checking the net two days later, there it is, a blog from oggs telling everything about it. my comment on his blog remains to me a great mystery. What would be Alexis’ answer on that? I still have the feeling that i may have his answer one day.
