And that's where the revelations unravelled one by one.Mga Mumunting Lihim is about Those Little Secrets that we keep even to our closest of friends."You can never know somebody completely even you best friend"-----DirekJoey
The film centers on what happens to four female friends in their thirties----as they confront certain realities in their changing lives.It also dwells on the fragile chains that bind people together,the volatile nature of friendship and how the years of camaraderie do not and cannot guarantee a total knowledge of one another.It is those little secrets and heartaches accumulated through time that can make friendship stronger----or destroy everything that the years have put together.
ANOTHER INDIE MOVIE? Direk Joey sees #MgaMumuntingLihim as MainDie -------it's a Mainstream-Indie movie.Cool!I like that.A hybrid of mainstrean and indie.Actually,does anybody know that Kimidora 1 is an Indie movie with a mainstream appeal?So I guess we can also say that Kimidora1 was also maindie?
Whatever it is,this only shows how Philippine cinema is evolving and perhaps we are seeing the direction in which it is going to take.
And take note, this is the first time that Direk Joey Reyes joined Cinemalaya.It will be interesting to observe how this movie will fit in the context of Cinemalaya.Will it stand out?Will it compliment the Festival?Will it be a misfit? How will the general viewers welcome the film?
If it is true that "no mainstream studio will agree to produce a project that defies conventional storytelling and,more so,places popular mainstream actresses against their usual typecast"
is the Filipino public really ready to embrace this rebellious approach to storytelling?
