Something queer

Sorry about the title. I mean no offense to homosexuals out there.

Anyway, the UP Film Institute presents a one-time-only screening of “Pantasya,” a five-episode digital feature that deals with gay fantasies involving “men in uniform” from international award-winning director Brillante Mendoza, on March 20 (Tuesday) at 7 p.m.

Oh my… shounen ai to the max!

Pantasya in action takes place round the clock with each episode segueing to the next as follows:

Biyahe (10:45 a.m.): A jealous teen gay student hails a taxi cab of a jilted taxi driver. Misery loves company, so the two depressed hearts easily find comfort in each other’s lonely arms.

Linya (1:20 p.m.): A hermit gay homeowner calls a phone company to have his landline fixed. Two easy-going linemen show up to fix not only the line gone awry but also the hermit’s lonesome heart.

Laro (3 p.m.): After an inter-barangay basketball game, an introverted gay fan finds way into the locker room and takes a closer peek at the ball players doing a different game under the shower.

Biliiis! (5:48 p.m.): A delivery boy races against time to bring pizza to a bored gay yuppie working overtime. Luck seems to evade the frantic boy but the yuppie changes it.

Bantay (11:45 p.m.): Gay lovers are quarreling. Boyfriend drops artist at the townhouse after the tiff. The horny security guard in his graveyard shift offers more than a shoulder to cry on.

Cine Adarna is located in the Diliman Campus of the University of the Philippines (across the Bahay ng Alumni). For more information, please call telephone numbers: 9818500 (UP Trunkline) local 4286, 4289; 9262722 (Telefax).
