A Reader in Philippine Film: History and Criticism
A result of a symposium held in 2011 as a way of celebrating Nicanor Tiongson's birthday and retirement from the University of the Philippines, this reader is a compilation of papers that reflect the range of the concerns and approaches in Philippine film studies today, such as the intersection between film and the 'komiks'; the weight of colonial history on filmic representation; modes of narrative unfolding; and the promise and shortcomings of independent filmmaking.
Edited by Jonathan Chua, Rosario Cruz-Lucero, and Rolando B. Tolentino, it includes writings by Soledad S. Reyes, Clodualdo del Mundo Jr., Jema M. Pamintuan, Renei Patricia Dimla, Jay Jomar F. Quintos, Patrick F. Campos, Laurence Marvin S. Castillo, Alvin B. Yapan, Louise Jashil R. Sonido, Nestor O. Jardin, Vicente G. Groyon, and Rosalie Matilac.
