ANG SAYAW NG DALAWANG KALIWANG PAA in select cinemas starting today

I was fresh from the Press Con of the upcoming Regal movie ASWANG yesterday when I found out about this. ANG SAYAW NG DALAWANG KALIWANG PAA will be shown in Select cinemas in Metro Manila starting today, October 26, Wednesday.It got my mind racing as I plot my schedule this weekend.

I am happy that Indie Films are finding their way one by one in mainstream cinemas. I missed Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank last time and I haven't forgiven myself yet until now so I want to make sure I get to watch this movie.

Writen and Directed by Alvin B. Yapan, ANG SAYAW NG DALAWANG KALIWANG PAA is a new bread full lenght film featured in CINEMALAYA 2011.
It explores the intersection and divergence between feminist and gay concerns in the third world context.When Marlon, a college student, stalks Karen, his literature professor, he finds out that she moonlights as a choreographer and dance teacher in a dance studio. Frustrated over his performance in her literature class, he plans to impress her instead by learning to poeticize his body movements and enroll in her dance class. He hires his classmate to teach him the basics of dancing. As Dennis, his tutor, teaches him how his body should move, Marlon begins to understand the intersections between the art of poetry and dance. This opens up his world to new insights about the life of Karen as s single woman who chose to live the life of an artist in a third world setting. 

Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa
 Marlon begins to understand how the poems being discussed by Karen in class are testaments to her choice to stand by her art. Karen eventually finds out, through Dennis, that Marlon only enrolled in her class to be near her. She confronts Marlon about this and wishes that his interest for dance would survive his infatuation for her. Marlon feels betrayed over Dennis telling Karen. But it is also this sense of betrayal that tells him that he has already become close to Dennis, whom he now considers a friend. Up until then, Marlon and Dennis have become inseparable as they both tackled the complexities of poetry and dance. Sensing the coldness between the two, Karen set them up to help her train a group of dancers for a cotillion dance. 

Eventually, Karen trains both Marlon and Dennis to star in her dance adaptation of the epic Humadapnon, when she bags a grant. Marlon will play the lead role of Humadapnon, who becomes trapped in a cave full of women. Dennis’ character now has to rescue Marlon from the women, as he plays the role of Sunmasakay, the male incarnation of the goddess Nagmalitong Yawa. On the eve of their performance, in a drunken conversation, Marlon confronts Karen how he could not understand her poetry. Karen, in response, assures Marlon that he does understand her poetry. 

His mind is just unwilling to, unlike his body which already understands. Karen invites Marlon to dance with her, but in the middle of her dance, she passes him onto Dennis. Their drunken dance culminates with Marlon and Dennis taking on the roles of Humadapnon and Sunmasakay on stage.

The movie stars Paulo Avelino, Rocco Nacino and Ms. Jean Garcia among others.
It will be shown in SM North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Centerpoint, SM Manila, SM South Mall, SM Mall of Asia, SM Bacoor, Glorietta 4, Trinoma, Robinsons Galleria and Robinsons Ermita. This is our chance to watch it!!!!
