User Rating:  / 0

Chuck Gutierrez’s “Iisa (As One)” is the lone Asian movie competing in the El Dorado Film Festival, currently ongoing in Arkansas, United States, until Sept. 18.

The fest’s website says it aims “to bring artists and audiences together through conversation.”

Featured in the festival are 56 films from 14 different countries. With its “diverse selection of international and local films,” the fest “provides audiences a taste of truly independent cinema.”

The El Dorado event was established two years ago, as part of the South Arkansas Arts Center’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Set in a small village ravaged by war and a typhoon, “Iisa” features Rio Locsin, Mon Confiado, Jess Mendoza and Angeli Bayani in the cast. Bayani San Diego Jr./Inquirer.net
