Cinemalaya 2008 Entries | TUTOS

This short film shows how the lives of a single father and his daughter are intricately bound together. The title tutos refers to the stitch sewn to join to pieces of cloth, particularly those used in making a pair of trousers. Tutos is a story of a small town tailor Rey and his only daughter Elisa. Not having any other female around the house, Elisa grew up being a bit too tough for a lady (or “astig”) something her father incessantly complains about.

While Rey effortlessly makes pairs of trousers day in and day out, he agonizes over the cold and distant demeanor of Elisa. How long will it take before Rey creates a seamless relationship with his daughter? Will it be as easy as sewing a perfect piece of garment he so skillfully makes? Boyet, a loyal co-worker, is witness to this tattered and patched relationship that is just waiting to be sewn beautifully together.

Filmmaker La Yamsuan earned her degree in Film and Audiovisual Communication from UP Diliman. A passionate writer, filmmaker, and an independent cinema advocate, she has taken part on several film and television productions both as a student and as a media practitioner. She has also worked for The Filipino Channel, ABS-CBN’s cable network abroad, and is currently an instructor at the De La Salle College of St. Benilde School of Design and Arts teaching Basic Video Production and Management for Media Arts students.
