The Tioseco-Bohinc Film Series picks up where Alexis Tioseco left off with his Fully Booked screenings, casting light on independent films that deserve more audience than it has. An extension of the tireless passion and unconditional love both he and Nika Bohinc put into giving permanence and viability to truly independent cinema, it is also an active remembering of their work and life .
For its premiere, the Tioseco-Bohinc Film Series with the help of the Jeonju International Film Festival is presenting Lav Diaz’s “Butterflies Have No Memories”. One of three 40 minute films commissioned by Jeonju for the tenth edition of its annual digital project, “Butterflies” is set in Marinduque, where once wealthy islanders undergo economic upheaval in light of a mining company’s withdrawal. The arrival of a young woman from Canada changes everything.
The film will be screened on Sunday, December 20, 2009, at Fully Booked U-View (Bonifacio High Street) from 3 pm to 5 pm. Lav Diaz will introduce the film through a video directed by Waise Azimi, who will moderate the discussion right after. Feel free to come and invite your friends.
