“Walang Hanggang Paalam” took home the top plum in the 1st SoHo International Film Festival NYC 2010 last February 21.
Directed by the tandem of Paolo Villaluna and Ellen Ramos, “Walang Hanggang Paalam” (English title: Endless) bested 11 other films in competition including “A Kiss of Chaos” (USA), “Just Like Joe” (USA), “Non Con Un Bang” (Italy), and 2 other Philippine entries – Gil Portes’ “Pitik Bulag” and Dale Adriatico’s “The Pastor’s Kid”. The movie is the last of a trilogy on hapless relationships. Villaluna and Ramos previously produced “Ilusyon” in 2006, and “Selda” in 2008.
“Walang Hanggang Paalam” is a story of four individuals who, in the course of seeking love, discover themselves and their fate. Villaluna and Ramos are known for their classic style and restrained attack on a movie’s narrative. The movie features Lovie Poe, Joem Bascon, Jake Roxas and Jackie Woo. Forward Group Japan produced the movie (CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE TRAILER OF “Walang Hanggang Paalam”).
Held from February 18 to 21, SIFF was designed “to celebrate the cutting-edge of digital technology while honoring traditional forms of storytelling,” say founder Jorge Ballos on its official site.
