Recently came across some promising media about my heritage. First up is a film called Rakenrol by Quark Henares. Its an indie film about 2 friends and their journey on making a rock and roll band. I got to say the music was great, the cinematography was of good quality compared to the usual "cheap" feel of way the main filipino films are made. The acting was pretty decent not too cheesy and OA. So what was wrong with the film? Well I felt the movie didn't live up to the hype of the trailer. LOL!
I am just glad that cinematography in the homeland is progressing with this little film right here.
Second is a hip hop music video about Filipino pride. Usually not into "Asian" pride type video's because usually they are "embarrassing" and FOB. But this song has a hard beat, the flow is smooth, the lyrics really show who we are as Filipino's.
I have become more intrigued about my roots ever since going back the Philippines in 2009 and I am becoming more proud of who I am and where I came from. One day I want to do something about bringing more hope to the motherland and with that being said I hope we make some P-NOISE!!! <--- Hahaha! That was cheesy!
