To usher in the New Year, the UP Film Institute will hold a special full run for Kaleldo (Summer Heat) starring Cherry Pie Picache, Angel Aquino, Juliana Palermo and Johnny Delgado. This indie film, directed by Brillante Mendoza, had its world premiere in the first ever Rome International Film Festival (IFF) last October.
Kaleldo is a saga about a domineering father and his three grown-up daughters living in Guagua, Pampanga—a town devastated by volcanic eruption ten years earlier. Kaleldo sustains the expanding line of local titles by prominently placing the Philippines in the world map of cinema.
After serving as Opening Film at the Extra Section of the 1st Rome IFF (13-21 October 2006), Kaleldo made more world stops, namely, 43rd Vienna IFF (13-25 October 2006); 26th Hawaii IFF (Filipino Focus, 19-29 October 2006); 30th Cairo IFF (Festival of Festivals, 28 November-8 December 2006).
