Event description

Description

The Philippine Embassy in Canberra, in partnership with Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), present, the first screening of critically acclaimed Filipino film, "Ang Larawan" (The Portrait).

Ang Larawan is the film adaptation of Larawan, The Musical which is based on National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin’s three-act English play A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino. First published in 1952, Joaquin’s work has been depicted numerous times on stage on screen and in English and Filipino—making it one of the most pedigreed literary works of the Philippines.

In 2017, Culturtain with the help of supervising producer Alemberg Ang, shares Ang Larawan, The Movie with the global audience. Loy Arcenas, a multi-awarded Broadway theatrical set designer and director, was at the helm of the much-awaited film.

This movie has English subtitles. Suitable for 15 years old and above.
