PAALAM AKING BULALAKAW
(GOODBYE MY SHOOTING STAR)

This is not a film by KHAVN
Starring MERYLL SORIANO

K. loves Ana. Then Ana went missing. But now she’s back. And so is K. The walk through the old school. The strange encounters. The eye doctor. The rekindled memories. Chance? Or design? What we talk about when we talk about love are the things unsaid. The words that fail. The lovesongs in your head. The poetry between the lines.

Jolina and Squatterpunk have nothing in common and you’d be right to think that but you’d be also be wrong. They have one – – – Khavn. The teleserye mush of “Gusto” comes from the same place as the apocalyptic gorepunk of Three Days Of Darkness. The avantpop filmmaker has a flipside and a hopeless devotion to love and lovesongs. And he wears his secret heart on his sleeve on Paalam Aking Bulalakaw (Goodbye My Shooting Star). Forget John Lloyd & Sarah. Spike the senti. Bittersweeten the punch. Love is love and loss and regret and long goodbyes all the things you want to say but can’t.

World Premiere, 42nd Pesaro International Film Festival, Italy
