Filipino Short Film ANGELITO Gets Global Online Release this Easter


Jerrold Tarog’s much talked about short film ANGELITO will have its global online release this coming Easter via the film streaming site Cinetropa. The 20-minute movie that bridges the stories of the blockbuster film “Heneral Luna” and its upcoming sequel “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral” was just released in the Philippines this past February along with the acclaimed romantic comedy “I’m Drunk, I Love You”. Fans of “Heneral Luna” from around the world can now catch “Angelito” with this exclusive Cinetropa digital release.

Set right after Luna’s assassination, “Angelito” focuses on Antonio Luna’s aides-de-camp, Jose and Manuel Bernal. Alex Medina and Art Acuña, who play Jose and Manuel Bernal respectively, reprise their roles. Aside from the Bernal brothers, some central characters from “Heneral Luna” such as Arron Villaflor’s Joven Hernando are also part of this mini-sequel.

With fallen heroes at the forefront of this thrilling film, the release of “Angelito” this April also serves as a commemoration of the Philippines’ Araw ng Kagitingan (Bataan Day) in honor of all the country's heroes who fought for independence throughout the nation's history. 

“Angelito” will be launched and be made available on Cinetropa.com starting April 15, Saturday midnight  (12:00AM EST) in North America and April 16, Sunday noon (12:00PM) in Manila for a price of $US 2.00 and Php 100.00 respectively.  The global online availability of "Angelito" marks another first and exclusive digital release on Cinetropa.
