LVN Studios and the State of Post-War Cinema
28 September (Saturday) | 2:00-4:00 PM
Basement Auditorium, Ateneo Law School, Rockwell Drive
It was in the rubble of post-war Manila where big production houses, such as LVN Films began to restore their place in society as the foremost source of entertainment. The cultural shift brought about by the war was palpable in the films they produced: alongside their usual fare they began to create movies that encapsulated different aspects of the experience of the Japanese Occupation.
Join Nick Deocampo in LVN Studios and the State of Post-War Cinema as he rewinds to the studio houses of the 50s, glossy in their black and white film stills and pioneers in the chemical formula of creating love teams.
