The trailer for Alleluia’s FIRST Film – She, Who Can See – is now available!

September 17, 2017 in Other Work by Alleluia Panis, She Who Can See

Big congratulations to our very own Alleluia ‘Manai’ Panis!

Not only is she the recipient of the first-ever San Francisco Arts Commission’s Artistic Legacy Grant (*friendly reminder: RSVP below to attend the the special presentation in her honor: Tuesday, Sept 26 – 7 pm during the SFAC grants convening at Herbst Theatre*).

She also finished her first film!! SHE, WHO CAN SEE tells the haunting story of Salima and Nico. When the powerful waves of Salima’s  shamanic inheritance surge into the daily realities of their middle-class life, their refusal to succumb to conventional western medical diagnosis of mental illness, plunge them into the disorienting world of  visions, dreams, and ancestral spirits.

Great work and congrats to Alleluia’s talented team: co-director, film extraordinaire Wilfred Galila; composer Florante Aguilar and the amazing dancers: Alexandria Diaz DeFato, Greg Manalo, June Arellano, Jonathan Mercado, Sammay Dizon and Rebecca Fazio!

Check out the trailer and read more about the film and crew here.
