BARBER'S TALES

Barber’s Tales / Mga Kuwentong Barbero (2013)

Directed by: Jun Robles Lana


Set during the Marcos regime, this movie tells the story of a female barber deciding what to do with her scissors.


Will she use it for grooming?

Or will she use it to cut the lies?


Ginawa nilang armas ang pelikulang ito para makapaghatid ng mensahe na pupukaw sa ating isipan.


Hindi sila nag-bulag-bulagan.

Hindi sila nagpagamit


Ramdam mo ang pagsa-sanib-pwersa ng mga batikang artista para makagawa ng isang makabuluhang proyekto. Nakakahanga at nakakahawa ang kanilang tapang.


You can feel the dedication of every artist, putting their craft into good use. This is more than just a movie; it’s a testament of love for our country.


The storytelling is not complicated; the lines are not complex; the scenes are straightforward. The simplicity of it sometimes limits them to create more powerful moments. But it also allows them to impart a message that is clear, significant and timeless.


Walang kaarte-arte. Walang dramahan.

Sasabihin nila ang nararapat sabihin.

Gagawin nila ang nararapat gawin.


Basta’t tama, kailangang lumaban.

At eto ang pinaglalaban ng pelikulang ito.


Sa mundo nating napapagiliran ng mga kuwentong barbero… Ano ang papaniwalaan mo?


Maging mapanuri.

Huwag magpapaloko.
