Urian Anthology 1990-1999

For the past 35 years, journalists and scholars have been documenting and preserving the history of Philippine Cinema. It is with great joy that the third volume of the Urian Anthology has finally been released.

The latest volume documents films released between 1990 and 1999.

It is a must read for any true student of Filipino cinema and even more so for those who grew up with the films documented here.

I’m already looking forward to the next volume which includes the rise of independent films in the Philippines.
