Changing Partners,’ which was shown in last year’s Cinema One Originals film festival, gets a public broadcast pardon. It opens today in cinemas nationwide. There had been consequently many theater musicals that have made the transition to film. The first Filipino movie, “Dalagang Bukid” (Jose Nepomuceno, 1919) was based in version to a musical operate, and hence were several of the to the lead Filipino films. Lately though, there had been a aspire of Filipino musical films, much less Filipino musical films derived from musical plays.
For some sheer coincidence, last year, there were two Filipino musical films, both based upon Filipino musical plays! The film version of Rolando Tinio-Ryan Cayabyab’s 1997 musical “Larawan” by Loy Arcenas won awards at the Metro Manila Film Festival in December. This one, the film description of Vincent de Jesus’ “Changing Partners” was shown in the Cinema One Originals film festival as one of the feature films in competition.
Within the appendix two years, I had seen “Changing Partners” in all its incarnations. First in June 2016, it was a one-night by yourself staged reading at the CCP as portion of Virgin Labfest XII. Second, in September 2016, it was a full-length doing produced by Munkeymusic staged at the PETA Theater. And now, it had already crossed subsequent to again to the silver screen! I think this should connected as one of the fastest film adaptations of a theater musical achievement out ever.
