makataIt’s an all-star cast film. Punong-puno ng mga MAKATA. Mga modernong MAKATA ng makabagong pamumuhay… Halika, at manood tayo. Tiyak niyan, muli na naman nating nanamnamin ang isang uri ng mundo na puno ng tamis, mga tula, at kalyaan…

Mamayang gabi, sa Cinema 5 ng Fisher Mall sa may Quezon Boulevard, ang lahat ng cast ng pelikulang MAKATA ay dadalo sa kanilang natatanging Premiere Night at Special Screening for friends and media. Mula sa imbitasyon ng direktor-prodyuser ng pelikula na si Mr. Dave Cecilio ang imbitasyon na ito.

“Ngayon pa lang ay nagpapasalamat na po ako sa lahat ng mga taong sumuporta sa amin, lalong-lalo na ang cast ng mga pelikulang ito- ang mga artista ko sa pelikulang ito na hindi naging maramot upang ialay ang kani-kanilang mga husay at kakayahan”, nasabi pa ni Mr. Cecilio sa isang text message para sa blogger na ito. “Lahat sila ay mahuhusay sa pelikulang ito. Lalo na sina Lance Raymundo, Sam Concepcion at Mr. Rez Cortez. Kasama na rin ang lahat- basta napakasaya ko at napakagagaling nila. Kaya naman excited na ako sa aming gaganaping Premiere Night mamayang gabi. See you there.”

lance raymundo has a very surprising role in "MAKATA'
lance raymundo has a very surprising role in “MAKATA’

May very surprising role sa pelikulang ito si Lance Raymundo. Tiyak na magugulat ang lahat sa kakaiba niyang role dito. It’s really one-of-a-kind role!!!

Ang MAKATA ay isang advocacy film. Ginawa ni Mr. Cecilio ang pelikulang ito para sa mga kabataan. Para muling manumbalik ang kanilang pagkahilig sa paggawa ng mga tula at literary expression.

Ito pa lamang ang simula. Lilibot ang MAKATA sa iba’t-ibang eskuwelang sa tulong DepEd (Dept. of Education) at balak din nilang ilibot ang pelikula sa ibang bansa.

Goodluck, Mr. Dave Cecilio and company. See you tonight!!!

“MAKATA” SYNOPSIS :

MAKATA (Poet) is a 90-minute digital film about a term tagged to a Filipino who speaks and writes poetically of his love and life expressively. The narrative flow of the story depicts the evolution of Philippine literature and poetry that centers in a life of a 68 year-old former poet or `Lakandiwa ng Tondo’-LOLO KANOR (Rez Cortez) . He became mute in 2011 due to a mild stroke, but his 21 year-old grandson KIKO (Sam Concepcion) , a high school dropout supports themselves through street food vending since Kiko‘s OFW parents got separated. KIKO joins the `Konektado’ series of `Fliprap Events-Sunugan’ street rap-battle
whenever he closes his kiosks and after attending
to his grandpa’s needs. Like his `Lolo Kanor’, Kiko voices out his angst in life through poetic rap by joining rap battles. His
childhood friends JOSE (Angelo Ilagan) and SONIA (Claire Ruiz) , support him whenever he joins `Sunugan’ rap battle. Jose is the `Prinsipe ng Bigkasan’ in his senior year and he visits Kiko’s pad to consult and borrow written poems from Lolo Kanor. Jose and Lolo Kanor acquaint each other on the same interest about `Balagtasan’ and negates Kiko’s flip-rap. Kiko’s pregnant live-in partner BRENDA (Dianne Medina) spells an unconventional inspiration to the poet. Lolo Kanor tries to express his non-verbal form of his poetry despite his condition. Jose provides profundity on this art. Kiko continues to hone his rap skill. Until a tragedy gives meaning to what the real
`MAKATA’ is all about.
