RONALDO BERTUBIN. COMPELLING FILMS from the MASTER-of-the-CRAFT.

I know RONALDO BERTUBIN, and I like him.

For one, he’s sincere and honest.

For another, he’s a sleek storyteller, this film director.

He harbors no pretensions in his films.

He prefers to hide nothing, and his camera explores and exposes pomp.

Alternatively this same camera can snake down the infamous underbellies of the PHILIPPINES to unearth dirt and sleaze of shameless gangs and societies tussling in decay.

LIFE MIRRORS THE GLORY AND THE SHAME.

Truth be told and he delivers it with panache.

Kudos to RONALDO BERTUBIN, and would I boldly say, he’s the PHILIPPINES most underrated film director.

RONALDO deserves more than what he’s now.

He’s a patriarch at story telling, a discipline most film directors in ASIA should emulate.

He’s a film maker that spins spider webs of innuendoes from dialogues that grip over faith, truth, progress, dogma, compassion and the sins of moral certitude.

His films leave in our minds provocative thoughts, no doubt about it.

But there are also hopes and healings at the end of his tales.

RONALDO has created myriad of opportunites for actors. And most of his talents in his films are first-timers. Yet he was able to bring out the best in them, to give compelling performances.

Check out his works – SIKIL, LOVE BIRDS and KURAP (BLINK).

We have enjoyed his films immensely, so did most of my producer friends from our region: MALAYSIA, SINGAPORE and THAILAND.

RONALDO (friends fondly called him RONI) is sincere, and humble and truly professional.

He has no “airs”, on cue always, and keeps his promises.

This guy will make it far, take note.

RONALDO BERTUBIN is a name to remember in the ASIAN art house  film world.

VIVA, RONI- it has been a long time since.

THE SKY IS YOUR LIMIT NOW.

  2. I agree with you koolcampus. Compelling is what best described Ronaldo Bertubin’s films.

    I have worked with Ronaldo Bertubin in his 3 films.

    I am Romualdo Avellanosa, the writer of Sikil, Lovebirds and Kurap and it’s really a breeze working with Direk Roni.

    He is open-minded and flexible but at the same time strict and serious.

    He is not after the awards or international recognition. His aim is to make films that he loved and share it to others.

    Thank you for appreciating our efforts to make film our venue for self-expression.

    We have a new film coming.

    Watch out for it!
