Adobo@Night April 23, 2010

It was a great night despite the hot temperature we are having for the event but nothing stopped people from going because it was for a noble cause: To help promote awareness of cervical cancer and help out women who have cervical cancer. The event took place at On Cue Theatre, a mobile theatre that I really find cool. It's an inflatable structure that can be placed anywhere.

Adobo Magazine, the leading magazine on advertising hosts this event that will send the proceeds for the cause for cervical cancer.

The evening started with Adobo Magazine's editor-in-chief Angel Guerrero welcomes and thanking everyone joining this worthy cause and promotes the Sahara Network, the group that promotes advocacy for cervical cancer.

We were also briefed about cervical cancer. Second breast cancer, cervical cancer kills 10 Filipino women everyday.Worldwide, a woman dies of cervical cancer every 2 minutes. But the most relevant I learned here that the disease not only kills an individual specifically a woman, but affects other lives as well. Because cervical cancer also kills relationships. It may be your wife, mother, sister, a friend,etc. 

Before viewing each film. we viewed the top advertisements for the past 10 years.

The first filmed viewed was Enkwentro by Pepe Diokno. A story that takes place in an unrevealed slum area where a city was governed by a ruthless official who has a death squad on his payroll. This story tells a sad reality mirrors the reality we have. Good example was Maguindanao.

The second film was by known director Erik Matti, The Arrival. A comedy of an ordinary man who left his job and decided spontaneously  for a new a new life somewhere far in a province he's not familiar with.

The last film was a Cinema One original,Yanggaw by Richard Somes, who was  the only filmmaker present during the event. Yanggaw is an Ilonggo term for aswang. Yes, this is a horror story that made us not sleep early.Starring Ronnie Lazaro and Tetchie Agbayani.
