Until Oct 1, Metropolitan Museum of Manila, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex, Roxas Blvd, Manila
This exhibition features the full-length films, documentaries and other productions like TV commercials that have made Brillante Mendoza the celebrated filmmaker that he is today.
This collection is complemented by film posters and video production equipment that the director himself designed and utilized in his work. Curated by Prof. Leo Abaya, Brillante Mendoza: A Contemporary Filipino Filmmaker is the first major exhibition on film that the MET is mounting to highlight film and the moving image as a contemporary art form. Film festivals and other events that celebrate Mendoza’s work have been organized here in Philippines and abroad in the past. This show at the MET, however, will be the first time the Mendoza’s body of work is explored comprehensively and within a museum exhibition context. It is complemented by a set of education programs that includes off-site special screenings of his multi-awarded films at the SM Mall of Asia and the Conrad Hotel, and weekend workshops and lectures.
Admission to the MET is PhP100, open Mondays to Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
