CCP Remembers Departed Artists and Cultural Workers Through an Online Memorial Site

THE Cultural Center of the Philippines, through the Office of the Artistic Director and the Intertextual Division, pays tribute to artists, cultural workers, and media practitioners who have gone before us during the COVID-19 pandemic through an online memorial site. Launched on April 9, 2021, via CCP Intertextual Division Facebook page, the Hanggang sa Muli: Pagpupugay at Pasasalamat sa mga Pumanaw memorial website features obituaries, with short biographies and photos of the Filipino artists, cultural workers, CCP employees, patrons of arts and culture, and media personalities who have passed away from March 2020 to the present. The site will also serve as a bulletin board to inform the general public about the passing of an artist and/or cultural worker.  It is virtual space where the creative community can mourn, celebrate the life of the departed, and offer support to each other in time of grief. It is a good venue to share their expressions of grief and the good memories they have with the departed through comments and posts. Through the Hanggang sa Muli website, …

Thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) #SnyderCut

This course is irreversible. This action is irreversible. But Zack Snyder was able to. Okay, by now numerous people have seen the much-awaited #SnyderCut. You’re lucky if you have HBO Max. If not, pretty sure you subscribed to HBO Go and experienced problems accessing the app on March 18, the day Justice League 2021 premiered. That was expected so I decided to wait a while.
