Have you guys seen Pisay yet? I saw it last Tuesday with the usual suspects (JAm, Jem, Leks, Jonas, and Chewy; Mark and Hannah were also at the screening but they arrived late). I didn't really want to write extensively about it because there's just no way to do justice to the experience of what Howie Severino calls a 'cinematic love letter to a school'. He gave the film a rave review.

Auraeus and direk Laurice Guillen were right: This may be the first movie that portrays modern Filipino youth as being as brilliant as Rizal had envisioned more than a century ago.

Perhaps the most popular Pisay alum, Jessica Zafra, also liked the movie (in a post with a title that any Pisay kid should get):

Auraeus Solito has three strengths as a filmmaker. One, he draws fine performances from his actors, even those who had no previous acting experience. Two, he can tell a story visually, unlike many Pinoy filmmakers whose movies look like radio drama serials. Three, he knows his strong points, so his confidence is evident even in scenes that might seem problematic. These strengths are on display in his third feature film, Pisay, the intertwined stories of six scholars at the Philippine Science High School in the ’80s.

The film will be screened at UP on July 31, 5PM. I think there will be additional screenings if the film were to win awards in tomorrow night's awarding ceremonies for the Cinemalaya festival. The PSHSAA and the PSHS Foundation will also be sponsoring screenings of the film at The Block on August 24 and 25.
