Finally! The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) will reopen its doors to the public starting this Friday, November 5. Their reopening kicks off with a series of screenings titled WAGI! Celebration of Filipino Excellence, focusing on the international achievements of our fellow Filipinos.
The screenings begin with A Thousand Cuts, Ramona Diaz’s social documentary about the first Nobel laureate from the Philippines, Maria Ressa. It screens for free at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater) this Friday at 7 PM. There will also be a talkback with the film director and guest reactors.
The CCP has also released its new normal protocols for accommodating guests. They will only allow fully-vaccinated guests, and the theater will be available with just 30% of the seating capacity. The minimum health protocols such as the wearing of face masks will also be in place. More details are available here: bit.ly/CCPNewNormalProtocol.
After A Thousand Cuts, the CCP will also be screening Team Pilipinas: The Atom Araullo Specials, featuring Hidilyn Diaz and the other heroic athletes who brought home multiple Olympic medals for the country. It will be screened on November 26. 7 PM at the CCP Main Theater.
Erik Matti’s On The Job: The Missing 8 will also screen at the CCP Main Theater on December 9, 7 PM. The film also garnered acclaim at the 78th Venice Film Festival, with John Arcilla winning the Best Actor award.
