must honor

image

 Every September 1st, on Alexis and Nika’s death anniversary Rock Ed Philippines screens a Mike de Leon film. We usually screen “Kung Mangarap Ka’t Magising,” but this year we chose to feature “Batch 81.”

The film’s lead actor Ralph Eigenmann (Mark Gil) passed away this morning- on the day we had long scheduled to honor and pay tribute to his mind blowing talent & expansive work.

He now shares an anniversary with two film critics who have hailed his work when they were all still alive. What film-furious conversations Alexis, Ralph, & Nika will probably have!

We mourn alongside all who love and admire Ralph.
