Organizers describe it as “quite a family portrait.” This photo call to end all photo calls was organized to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival.

For this “exceptional” photo call, 113 screen luminaries from all over the globe were invited “to pay tribute to the fest”: former Palme d’Or winners (who were seated in the front row, of course), best actor and actress recipients, past and present jury members and renowned guests.

Representing the Philippines is filmmaker Brillante Ma Mendoza, who won best director in Cannes for “Kinatay” in 2009.

Mendoza joined Hollywood/world cinema stars Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, Will Smith, Jessica Chastain, Kirsten Dunst, Charlize Theron, Benicio Del Toro, Elle Fanning, Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Monica Bellucci, Salma Hayek, Shu Qi, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, and acclaimed filmmakers Jane Campion, Pedro Almodovar, Michael Haneke, Bille August, Dario Argento, Costa-Gavras, Oliver Stone, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro and Sofia Coppola. Say fromage (cheese)! —BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.

LOGLINE:
Panata is the story of Mario (King), a mask maker’s son, who performs the Moriones Lenten rites for his father’s return amidst an impending rebellion during Martial Law.

BRIEF SYNOPSIS:
Mario and his best friend, Toto, are witnesses to the brutal and unjust arrest of Mario’s father, Tasyo, a suspected rebel, during the early years of Martial Law. The desperate longing leads Mario and his mother, Azon, to devote and surrender themselves to a higher power and perform various Catholic rites and rituals for the family patriarch’s return.

Years of prayer and devotion have passed, still no father is found. Mario takes his father’s roles as breadwinner, mask maker, and rebel sympathiser. Later on, he is reunited with his childhood friend, Toto, now a student activist enlightened by higher ideologies in his studies. Exposed by the chaos brought about by the Marcos’ regime’s decline, Toto brings Mario news of the rebel group’s impending victory against the dictator and invites him to participate in a clandestine gathering in the mountains.
