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.
