Florante Aguilar and producer Fides Enriquez in person. After its sold-out screenings at CAAMFest, Harana returns to San Francisco! Upon his father's death, Florante Aguilar (a classically trained guitarist from San Francisco) returns to the Philippines after 12 years of absence. He rediscovers the music of harana—an almost-forgotten tradition of Filipino serenading, when men sang under the window at night to declare their love for a woman. Led by award-winning director Benito Bautista, this riveting film contains a treasure trove of beautiful Filipino music waiting to be rediscovered. Intent on preserving vanishing customs, the film rekindles a connection with the past before it is irrevocably lost. (2012, 104 min)
