The short film shown before the main feature is “Angelito”. It runs for about 20 minutes and is written and directed by Jerrold Tarog, the young filmmaker who earlier gave us the acclaimed hit, “Heneral Luna”. It’s apparently some sort of a prologue for his new movie, the biopic of Gen. Gregorio del Pilar.
First is Joven Fernando (Arron Villaflor), the young journalist who was interviewing John Arcilla as Hen. Luna, then the two rebolusyonaryo brothers allied with Luna, Manuel and Jose Bernal (Art Acuna and Alex Medina), who are now being hunted by the men of Gen. Goyo del Pilar.
The title role of Angelito is played by Tomas Santos, a boy who is arrested by the soldiers of Goyo. Why Goyo has done this to a little boy is something we should watch out for in the full length film on Hen. del Pilar. We could see that producers Artikulo Uno have already spent so much for the topnotch production values of this short film, and we can’t wait what more they will do in the coming full length film on Goyo del Pilar.
