MALA (Movies Adapted from Literary Arts) opens with the adaptation of the Filipino epic poem and literary classic IBONG ADARNA. Using muppets, animation, and live action, the IBONG ADARNA will be brought to life for the enjoyment of children online. IBONG ADARNA is also one of the pre-opening events for the Children’s Biennale which runs in November.
MALA is directed by popular film and TV actor Xian Lim and is written by premiere ventriloquist Ony Carcamo. Using puppetry, MALA breaks the mould of children’s shows as it creates adaptations of Filipino classics using new technology.
MALA is part of SINING SIGLA, a season-long virtual outreach program of the CCP Office of the President Arsenio “Nick” Lizaso. SINING SIGLA is the CCP-OP Outreach Program’s pivot to digital that further highlights its indefatigable mission of reaching out to its public despite the current ban on communal activities due to the pandemic. It boasts of having a number of programs that will surely make the public fall in love more with the arts.
