Brillante Mendoza wins another best film award

The directorial skills of multi-awarded Filipino director Brillante Mendoza was recognized anew when his film “Lola” was adjudged Best Film at the 8th edition of the Asian Film Festival held in Rome late last week.

A total of 17 entries competed against “Lola” but it was the Filipino’s entry that got the judges’ nod because of his remarkable ability to create characters showing the dignity of the poorer classes’ life.

He was also cited for his amazing skill in the use of space, time and light that are perfectly inherent to a story where lightness and drama are combined together.
