Three Generations Trailer

Rummaging through my CDs at home, I found my copy of this..



Back in college, for our Litera1 (Philippine Literature) final project, we were tasked to adopt a short story written by a local author and translate it into a trailer. Our group opted Nick Joaquin's Three Generations, which we renamed Sugatang Langit.

For most of Nick Joaquin's works, there is always the contrast between the liberals and the conservatives, a defiance of societal norms and a justification for such. In Three Generations, the story revolves around a grandfather, a father and a son. The grandfather is a lecherous man, very worldly and rough - a man of vice, if there should be any description to be made. His son, the father, disgusted by his father's acts had vowed never to do the same to his son, never to raise his hand to hit his son. But with the turn of events, apparently, things won't go as planned and blood shall reign over acts.

The trailer was directed by Cara Carriaga and Will Josue. For the lack of girls in our group, I had to take on two roles, that of the mother and the mistress, which was very funny since the characters were treating me in different sorts of ways that wouldn't be understood had this note not been highlighted. None of us have ever had any directing or acting experience during this shoot, which would explain the really bad acting. For the sake of the grade, we really did our best and this was the trailer we submitted.

Sigh.. Memories...
