Two men and a woman in a bizarre love triangle…
The UP Film Institute is proud to premiere yet another digital feature that is making the rounds of the world to bring honor to the country and find it an enviable place in the map of global cinema. Ronaldo Bertubin’s Sikil (Unspoken Passion) screens this November 22 Thursday at 5 and 7 p.m.
Billed as a bizarre love triangle, Sikil tells the story of childhood friends who grew up in a small town south of Manila. They would each struggle to seek their true worth, their true identities and ultimately the elusive experience of love much more of the kind that dare not speak its name.
Sikil received its world premiere at the 28th Mostra de Valencia Cinema del Mediterrani (Valencia International Film Festival, 16-24 October 2007). It then proceeded to Mexico for the inaugural of the Cancun International Film Festival (Official International Film Festival for the City of Cancun, 14-18 November 2007). Next stop for the dramatic film come New Year is the 19th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival (Nortel Networks Palm Springs International Film Festival, 3-14 January 2008).

Jim Orencio enjoins us to travel through the
“Under the Shade” in fact was where he developed the idea and concept for this exhibition. Beneath the shadows, he decided to pay homage to areas in his surroundings that provided respite in his impassioned development, motivation during lull days, stimulation to call on his creative muse or insight during various ponderings.
As an artist who paints what is before him, he translates his visual experience through a communion of ambience and subject matter. The terrain, through his honest depiction, brings one to ruminate on quiet but substantive thoughts. He brings forth an introspective state by recreating the convivial atmosphere of color, light, texture and life.
The transition between the natural foliage and the manmade elements through Orencio’s expressive rendering makes the static rudiments come to life. Each vista recounts an interplay of light and mood that is pleasant and inviting yet exclusive and absolute.
The visceral quality of each work coupled with the energetic brushwork communicates a moving serenity, leading one to get lost in contemplation. In this day and age where bountiful of problems greet us daily; Orencio’s pieces provide a gentle escape in order to redirect our harangued sensibilities towards a more positive outlook.
“Garden Elements” is a journey from within.
