A small-town jeepney driver dreams of becoming an astronaut and goes on a series of adventures that takes him as far as Europe, causing him to revisit his values.
Visions/Panawin aims to introduce the New York University and KJCC community to the ardent, prolific culture of the Philippines as expressed in key works from the rich and audacious canon of Philippine cinema.
The Fall Series will present six films with two-week video-on-demand availability windows each. You can pre-order a free tickets for each title. Once you play start on a film, you will have a 48-hour watch window.
If it’s your first time, you’ll be asked to register individually on the Eventive site (if you still don’t have an Eventive account). You will then be asked to enter an unlock code (case sensitive): siglo_de_epifania137a*z
You will then be able to “buy” the ticket for your first film. The system will remember the unlock code you entered for the first film, which will allow you to “buy” tickets for other films in the series
You will receive email confirmation for each ticket, with details on availability dates and the 48-hour watch window.
