“Sonata,” a film starring Cherie Gil, will be the second in the Filipino Film Marathon series benefiting the Philippine Nationality Room at the University of Pittsburgh.
The story follows an opera diva (Cherie Gil) who has lost her voice. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, she returns home to Negros Occidental where she encounters a young boy (Chino Jalandoni). As the world of the well-travelled diva collides with the world of a boy in the throes of exploration, both discover the nature of art and the healing power of love.
Rated PG-13, the film is in Hilgaynon (Ilonggo), Tagalog, and English with English subtitles.
