This “November to December” live streaming coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Elwood “El Maestro” Pérez as filmmaker. Watch his award-winning films Esoterika:Maynila and Otso on YouTube from Nov. Protected content to Dec. 8, Protected content .

Esoterika:Maynila's Synopsis:

In didactic Pilipino komiks tradition, Ronnie Liang embodies the schizoid character of Mario/Galogo, an up-and-coming graphic novelist. In a voyage of self-discovery, this protagonist---alternately ingenious and ingenuous---plunges into the territory of the exalted, the charmed and the bizarre, swimming through the uncharted waters of the unique Filipino experience, emerging from it all as an authentic Manileño imbued with the thought that tolerance is sophistication. The multilingual cast is a convergence of Manila denizens of cross-
cultural persuasions.

Otso's Synopsis:

Hoping to reconnect with his roots back to Manila, Lex (Vince Tañada) writes a screenplay for an indie film based on the secret lives of his neighbors next door. Facts and his own artistic infusions all clash together as he discovers that reinterpreting real life isn't always a good thing.
