POTATO ON THE GO BULLETIN (TV):
After the successful kick-off in Cebu and following the well-attended screening in Iloilo last month, GMA-7’s multi-awarded documentary program I-Witness, which was dubbed as the landmark in Philippine television, gears up for the third leg of its docufest regional tour on Sunday, August 12, in Davao City.
Together with I-Witness’ multi-awarded documentarists—Howie Severino, Kara David, Jay Taruc, and Sandra Aguinaldo—watch one riveting documentary after another starting 12 noon at Gaisano Mall Cinema 5. The first set of I-Witness documentaries include David’s Gintong Putik, Aguinaldo’s Batch 2012, Severino’s Saplot, and Taruc’s Lapnos.
The screening will be followed by an open forum with all four hosts. Enjoy award-winning documentaries in the second set starting at 3pm with David’s Ambulansyang de Paa, Aguinaldo’s Iskul Ko No. 1, Taruc’s Batang Kalabaw, and Severino’s Huling Hala Bira. The set will be followed by another open forum and a special I-Witness DVD signing session. Severino, who is also GMA News Online’s Editor-in-Chief and VP for Multimedia Journalism, is clearly looking forward to the docufest’s Davao leg. “I'm excited about going to Davao, one of my favorite cities in the Philippines, because I have been going there for coverage since the 1980s and seen how it has changed, mostly for the better,” says Severino.
Catch the I-Witness Docufest in Davao City on Sunday, August 12 at Gaisano Mall Cinema 5 from 12-6:30pm. Admisson is free.
