ANG LARAWAN “The Movie Musical”
In partnership with the Culturtain Musicat Productions, Inc., LPU through the Arts and Cultural Affairs Department presented the movie musical Ang Larawan on September 7, 2018 at the JPL Hall of Freedom.
Ang Larawan, the musical film directed by Loy Arcenas, is originally based on Nick Joaquin’s A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino. The story runs through the life of a Filipino family experiencing financial troubles and faced with the dilemma of selling their house versus selling their father’s self-portrait.
The film garnered plenty of positive feedback from the invited students. Most of them related to the film’s main subject of family while some simply enjoyed the fact that Intramuros was the setting of the story. Students also enjoyed the privilege of a meet-and-greet and talk/forum with artists Rachel Alejandro and Celeste Legaspi and producer Girlie Rodis.
