    Who can now say that twelve years ago (that was in 1992, when the movement was rumored or believed by many, in deep internal crisis, and the government was claiming strategic victory over the New People’s Army) you actually believed or could imagine that the Philippine government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) would sit across each other on the negotiating table as two equal entities, hold peace talks abroad with a foreign government as a neutral third party, and sign formal agreements, such as an agreement to respect human rights and international humanitarian law?

    DALENA. Helms “The Guerrilla is a Poet” with her sister.

    When we visited the set of “The Guerrilla is a Poet,” codirector Sari Dalena was down with the flu, so we chatted with her sister, Kiri, to discuss their entry for the CineFilipino Film Festival.

    Kiri, who was the cinematographer of the 2011 CinemaOne Best Picture winner, “Ka Oryang,” shares, “I’ve worked with Sari in various capacities—as a cinematographer, production designer, talent, writer and, now, as codirector.”

    The multitasking siblings complement each other. Kiri shares, “We’re interested in Philippine history, martial law, living historical figures, and the revolutionary movement. Our collaboration starts before we go to the set—meetings, deciding on the actors, the budget, etc. We also correct each other.” Read more
