Watch a film and help Sir Nick

Got this text from Bayan Muna's Tonyo last night:

"Prof. Nick Atienza is still at PGH. Help us raise funds for him by watching film classic Moral, January 25 (10 am/1 pm/3 pm) at the UP Film Center. Tribute program (for Sir Nick) at 5 pm. Please pass."

Directed by Marilou Diaz Abaya and screenplay by Ricky Lee (I still have his Trip to Quiapo book -- fantastic read), Moral was just one of the most notable films produced in the country between the 1970s to early 1980s, touted as the Second Golden Age of Philippine Cinema.

The Cultural Center of the Philippines, which keeps an archive of the best Filipino classics, describes Moral as thus: "The film traces the lives of four women from 1972 to 1982. What happens to these four women as they try to make connections with one another and eventually with their real selves constitutes the core of the film." The film stars Gina Alajar, Sandy Andolong, Anna Marin, Rio Locsin.
