CSF Commends Fernandino Director Of Best World Film [ Monday, 12th of October 2015 | 2 years ago ]


The director of the international award-winning film “Ari: My Life with a King” is a Kapampangan and a Fernandino.

Carlo Encisu Catu was recognized by the City Government of San Fernando for his directorial work that won as Best World Film in the Harlem International Film in New York, USA and was also officially selected to join the Vancouver International Film Festival in Canada.

Mayor Edwin D. Santiago handed to Catu during Monday’s flag- raising program at the City Hall, the commendation as embodied in a copy of the Sanggunian Panlungsod’s Resolution No. 2015-1122.

Authored by Councilor Harvey Quiwa, the resolution recognizes Catu and signifies the Fernandinos’ pride in his exceptional achievement that has brought honor not only to Fernandinos but to the whole Filipino race.

Said film promotes and preserves local cultures and local languages.

The story revolves around a Kapampangan youth who does not speak and is not interested in learning the native language until he meets the King of Kapampangan poets who then teaches and leads him to use his mother tongue.

While the film was directed by Catu, the Holy Angel University produced the movie as part of its advocacy in instilling the native language among Kapampangans.
