Traslacion featuring Aiza Seguerra and Liza Dino wins in New York's SOHO Film Festival

Couple Liza Dino and Aiza Seguerra's film Traslacion bags Best Documentary Film award in New York's SOHO Film Festival.


Ang documentary film na Traslacion: Ang Paglakad sa Altar ng Alanganin (The March to the Altar of Uncertainty) ang nanalo bilang Best Documentary Award sa 7th SOHO International Film Festival sa New York City.

Sa direksiyon ni Will Fredo, tinalakay nito ang temang LGBT sampu ng diskriminasyon na pinagdaraanan nila sa ating bansa.

Tampok dito ang real-life celebrity couple na sina Aiza Seguerra at Liza Dino na kinasal sa U.S. noong December 9, 2014.

Heto ang post ni Liza sa kanyang Instagram account tungkol sa victory ng Traslacion:

“This achievement is very special because it is a personal advocacy. TRASLACION is not JUST an LGBT documentary film, it is a film that explores LOVE—from all angles, across genders, race, and religion.

“I really hope that through this achievement, there will be more opportunities to show this film to a wider audience in the hope that when they get to see this—the prejudice, the hatred, the intolerance will somehow transform into mutual respect and perhaps... LOVE.”

Sa isa pang hiwalay na post, inalay ni Liza ang Traslacion sa mga naging biktima ng shooting massacre sa Orlando, Florida, kunsaan higit na 50 katao ang namatay.

“After what happened in Orlando, mas naging meaningful ang trip namin dito sa New York because our documentary film TRASLACION explores the plight that we LGBT couples go through in order to SURVIVE living in a country where RELIGION and the blind allegiance to it bears more weight than mutual respect and LOVE.

“STOP HATE CRIME. Pare-pareho tayong TAO. Lahat tayo may karapatang mamuhay ng totoo sa sarili natin at magmahal ng MALAYA.”

Ayon sa website ng SOHO International Film Festival, “the festival celebrates cutting-edge digital technology while honoring traditional forms of storytelling, encourages new and seasoned filmmakers from New York City and around the world to create and send in their fresh and innovative cinematic pieces.”
