Pi7ong Tagpo is about a life's journey, 7 different lives, 7 struggles, 7 decisions, 7 realities- all filmed in one take.
'Suka' is a story of a grandmother who seeks to pass on to her granddaughter the virtue of patience and delayed gratification; 'Wedding ring' deals with skeletons in the closet of a newly-married couple; 'Dad' talks about a family grappling with emotional vampires of the past; 'Star City' delves into the complexities of a May-December affair; 'Ninoy' chronicles the uncanny bond between a young man and a street kid brought up in the school of hard knocks; 'Mariel' is about a single mom's reawakening by the simplicity of a childs faith; 'Toga' deals with an OFW father trying to make ammends with his graduating daughter.
The vision of the producers and director Rahyan is to craft a unique film by shooting each segment in real time. This means that each story was done in one long take with absolute no cuts just like a theater production.
Director Rahyan Carlos expounds, 'Life is like a coin. You can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once'.
In an interview, Robert Seña, one of the actors and also part of the production team elaborates, "life has no rehearsals, no cuts. You only live it once."
Making the film more ambitious is the fact that each episode was shot between 13 to 20 minutes. Creative Futures seeks to inspire, educate and open peoples eyes to life's many possibilities and create a ripple for tomorrows wave a wave of hope and change that will make Filipino lives a little better.
Directed by Rahyan Carlos.
