Two elderly souls find each other in a depiction of purgatory in the first trailer for “Hintayan ng Langit,” an entry to this year’s QCinema International Film Festival.
Screen veterans Gina Pareño and Eddie Garcia portray Lisang and Manolo, respectively, in the Dan Villegas-directed (“Changing Partners,” “Exes Baggage”) adaptation of the one-act play penned by Juan Miguel Severo.
In the original play originally staged at the 2015 2016 Virgin Labfest, Lisang and Manalo are former lovers who went on to marry different partners.
Dying two years apart, Manolo finds Lisang still at the “waiting room,” yet to get her ticket to go up to Heaven.
While both in “Kalagitnaan,” Lisang and Manolo dredge up old arguments, relive fond memories, and unravel secrets to each other.
“Hintayan ng Langit” is one of the six entries in the Circle Competition of QCinema film fest, which will kick off its week-long run on October 21.
