Tungkol sa pakikipagrelasyon ng kasalukuyang henerasyon ang kuwento ng A Girl + A Guy, ang pinakamatapang at pinakamapangahas na pelikula ng direktor na si Erik Matti.

May mga frontal nudity at sex scenes dito ang mga baguhang artista na sina Rob Gomez, Alexa Miro, Candice Ramos, Sarah Holmes, Emilio Francisco, at Rosh Barman.

Sa naganap na virtual presscon ng A Girl + A Guy nitong Biyernes ng hapon, sinabi ni Direk Erik ang kanyang katuwiran kaya gumawa siya ng isang pelikula na posibleng maging dahilan para umalma ang mga moralista.

Pahayag ng award-winning director, “Big fan ako ng romantic movies, but where it came from, why I wanted to tell the story is because I’ve seen a lot of romantic movies that were made and it tend to sugarcoat the kind of generation we have now.

“Parang lahat ng artista natin, parang hindi pa pwedeng mag-kiss, di ba? Ang KathNiel, hindi pwedeng mag-kiss.

"Pero kapag nakita mo yung totoong buhay ng generation ngayon, kissing is no longer an issue.

“You don’t wait to get married to stick your tongue into somebody else’s mouth, even the new generation now.

“That always confuses me, and I have two daughters. I probably wrote it for them because I wanted to find out how this generation thinks."

Patuloy ni Direk Erik, “Di ba, tayo dati, kailangan makilala muna ang parents, ma-in love ka. Magkausap kayo nang matagal bago kayo magsabi ng 'Okey, hawakan mo na yung boobs ko.'

“Ngayon, hindi na ganoon, e. Una is physical intimacy, and then after physical intimacy, 'A, okay siya. I think I wanna go on a second date.'

“And in most of the generation I talked to, because of the research, wala talaga sa kanila yung, 'Ay pakakasalan ko na 'to.'

"Lahat yan, they know there’s a timeline to it.

"Parang yung generation ngayon, puro endo [end of contract] yung relationships, putol-putol.

“Those are things I wanted to tackle in the story, how confused they are, how uncertain or how indecisive they were about their lives.”

"THERE'S A LOT OF SEX IN THE MOVIE..."

Naniniwala si Direk Erik na ibang-iba na ang ugali ngayon ng mga kabataan, at ito ang mapapanood sa pelikula na mula sa kanyang panulat at direksiyon.

Saad niya, “It’s the tita in us that won’t accept that the children have changed. Twenty seasons of the Kardashians has changed the children.

“There’s a lot of sex in the movie—lots and lots of sex and very graphic sex.

"The top part with the movie is that with the culture now, I don’t want people saying there’s Erik Matti doing the female gays.

“Palagi nating naririnig ‘yan na 'Naghubad na naman yung mga babae, mga lalake nakabalot, kasi ang direktor straight.'

“I was really doing a balancing act, shooting all these sex scenes that the nudity does not just refer to women, but the nudity also goes with men and nudity with men.

“I mean, you can see the penis, you can see whatever, and it’s liberating in a sense.

"It’s liberating because, now, showing it online, you can get pass on the judgments of MTRCB, the judgment na may rules na ito lang ang pwedeng ipakita.

"If you want to tell a story that demands that, then you’re free to just tell that story without censorship.”

Mapapanood sa UPSTREAM.ph ang A Girl + A Guy simula sa June 24.

Alam ng lahat na hindi saklaw ng kapangyarihan ng Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) ang mga streaming platform na gaya ng UPSTREAM, VivaMax, at ktx.ph.

Dahil sa mga sex scene at frontal nudity scene ng kanyang upcoming project, tinanong si Direk Erik Matti kung hindi ba ito natatakot na sakupin o makialam na ang MTRCB sa mga streaming platform na malayang nakapagpapalabas ng mga maseselang eksena.

Tugon niya, “I think I’m responsible enough as a filmmaker to know the boundaries of making a film like this.

“I think also, I’m brave enough to show what should be shown because I know that if you judge it as a whole based on the story, you’re not gonna question it as being gratuitous. I’m very careful with that.

"I’ve done so many films and for everything I do, I try to as much as possible, say the loudest voice in certain topics.

"But at the same time, keep myself responsibly tame and, yes, I think it’s a really, really brave movie.”
