'Balangingi' short film official trailer

Here is the official trailer of Balangingi. Kalalangan Kamaru presents another Kapampangan short film ('Nosebleed' in English). It is an "intellectual" romantic comedy following a mind-boggling and unstable relationship of two intellectuals (read: nerds).

written and directed by Jason Paul Laxamana
crew: Diego Dobles, Arn Lagazo
music: Diego Dobles
starring: Jayvie Dizon, Frency Rodriguez, Raco Del Rosario, Crystal Herrera, Menchi Dobles

Xoo seems to be a standard teenager who lives boringly like everyone else, but unknown to people in his surroundings is what happens in his head--philosophizing about things average people would deem mundane, down to the minutest detail. One day, he is forced to attend a blind date. To avoid turning off his date, he struggles to suppress his intellectual side.

This short film gives a peek to that minority in Philippine society who are unlikely to survive socially by being themselves--the Filipino intellectuals. Or as laymen would call them: Nerds! As parents call them: Pilosopo!

We will be submitting this to the Cinemalaya short film category. We hope it would be a finalist.
