Ustetika awards forgotten fictionist

AN ALMOST forgotten Palanca award-winning fictionist was last year’s Parangal Hagbong honoree in the Varsitarian-sponsored 17th Ustetika Annual Literary Awards last Dec. 15 at the Thomas Aquinas Research Complex Auditorium.

The Ustetika recognized Lilia Pablo Amansec for her valuable contributions to Philippine literature. Some of her most memorable literary worksinclude her Palanca award-winning pieces “Lilies of Yesterday” (2nd place, 1957), “Dream Tiger” (2nd place, 1963), and “Loverboy” (1st place, 1964).

Pagharap sa mapait na lumipas

Taliwas sa unang impresyon na maaring mahinuha sa pamagat ng Yamashita, The Tiger’s Treasure, hindi lamang ito tungkol sa walang katapusang pagahahanap ng napabalitang kayamanan baskus mas malalim pa.

Mas nakatuon ito sa kung paano binalikan ng isang biktima ng panahon ng Hapon ang kanyang nakaraan at kung paano niya hinaharap ang kasalukuyan.

CCWS releases ‘Ustinig’

IN AN attempt to repackage literature and to make it more appealing to the MTV generation, the UST Center for Creative Writing and Studies (CCWS) launched “Ustinig: Thomasian Writers Read,” a compact disc (CD) featuring Thomasian writers reading their selected works, last Feb. 15 at the Chiang Ching Kuo Conference Hall.

The road love has taken

AT A time when most films are characterized by cynicism and disillusion, encountering a simple love story such as Zhang Yimou’s The Road Home is like taking in a breath of fresh air after choking from the fumes of Hollywood films.

Featured as the opening film of the China Film week last June 14 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, The Road Home is a story about traditions and true love, set in a rural province in Northern China.
