Supposed, you've already watched the 2017 musical film "Ang Larawan" by Loy Arcenas featuring Rachel Alejandro, Joanna Ampil, and Paulo Avelino. But have you watched the original adaptation of the literary play which it was based on?


To pay tribute to the late Naty Crame-Rogers (1922-2021), Casa Grande Vintage Filipino Cinema will stream on Vimeo the restored version of Nick Joaquin's "A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino" (1965) on Saturday, February 6, 2021, from 12pm to 10pm. 


Philippine theater pioneer Naty Crame-Rogers died on Monday, February 1, at age 98. She is best remembered for the iconic movie "A Portrait of an Artist as Filipino."




Portrait of an Artist as Filipino

The original black-and-white film in English-language was directed by the National Artist for Film Lamberto V. Avellana. It featured exceptional artists from the '60s, including Daisy H. Avellana, Naty Crame-Rogers, Vic Silayan, and Conrad Parham. 


The story was set in the pre-World War II Intramuros, Old Manila, in October 1941. It follows the story of a great yet impoverished painter, Don Lorenzo Marasigan, and his two daughters, Candida and Paula, who are dealing with the ravages of poverty. The film's central theme focuses on maintaining Filipinos' cultural identity under the influence of Western ideals. It also explores the concept of family conflict and many aspects of the Philippine high society during that time.
