One sings, the other mourns


In its 36th edition, the just concluded Asian American International Film Festival had a number of Philippine and Filipino-American features, including Marilou Diaz-Abaya: Filmmaker on a Voyage, a documentary on the late director by Mona Lisa Yuchengco, and Diaz Abaya’s 1983 feature, Karnal. The past few years I had been out of the country during the festival but this time I managed to see Benito Bautista’s Harana and Loy Arcenas’s Requieme. The former, a documentary, centers on four musicians: the Bay Area-based classical-guitarist Florante Aguilar, and three heretofore obscure haranistas—Felipe Alonzo, Romeo Bergunio, and Celestino Aniel. The three are practitioners of the traditional form of courtship that, like so many folk practices, is fast disappearing. Arcenas’s dramatic feature is loosely based on the real-life sordid story of Andrew Cunanan, the gay Filipino-American who went on a killing spree in 1997, tallying six murders, including the fashion designer Gianni Versace, before committing suicide in a Miami houseboat.
