‘Kasambuhay, Habambuhay’ Short Film Anthology Now Showing in Selected SM Cinemas

Check out the movie posters and synopses of the 10 "Kasambuhay, Habambuhay" short films.

In celebration of its 100 years in the country, Nestlé Philippines presents “Kasambuhay, Habambuhay” short film anthology (CLICK HERE for related article).

The movie posters and synopses of the 10 Kasambuhay short films are as follows:

The Howl and The Fussyket
(directed by Chris Martinez)

Eight-year old Aaron (Gerald Pesigan) is dead set on winning the Grand Prize in his 2nd Grade declamation contest. He is determined to win despite his obvious “f” and “p” speech defect, a proclivity common amongst some Filipinos to interchange the pronunciation of English words with the letters “f” and “p”. His mother (Eugene Domingo) takes an active albeit humorous role in preparing him for the competition. This is a story of perseverance, family unity and the real meaning of triumph and possibly the “Rocky” of all declamation contests!

(directed by Raul Jorolan)

A football coach (Marvin Agustin) takes his team of teenage boys out on a fieldtrip to the provincial home of his grandfather (Eddie Garcia). But instead of bonding as a team, the boys are more caught up with their gadgets. The coach’s grandfather is determined to change all that as he challenges the boys to detach from their virtual distractions and explore the great outdoors instead. The boys then unlock a new world of natural wonder and discovery, realizing that going offline is the only way to reconnect back to a life that is unplugged.

(directed by Jun Reyes)

Silup is “Pulis” (police) spelled backwards. We peek into the life of a Manila cop (Sid Lucero) whose day is made up of dealing with denizens and the crimes they commit. At work, he may be all tough and stern, but at home, we see his more sensitive side. He has this mysterious routine of taking out a can of sterilized milk from a cupboard and depositing his revolver in its place. Later on, it is revealed why he makes the switch and how it is like to live by his duty as a policeman to serve and protect.

Isang Tasang Pangarap
(directed by Sid Maderazo)

In a small town devastated by calamity and chaos, Elias (Ramon Bautista), still holds on to the one thing he considers sacred—a shiny red coffee mug. For him, this mug not only symbolizes his love for coffee but his hope for a better life. After an enlightening encounter with a strange sari-sari store owner, he is suddenly gifted with the ability to tell the future. Soon enough, he is proclaimed as “The Coffee Psychic” and personifies hope for the townsfolk. But can hope truly spring eternal in this comedic homage to the award-winning epic Filipino film, “Himala” (Miracle)?

Sali Salita
(directed by A/F Benaza)

A mother who writes children’s storybooks, ironically, doesn’t have enough time to create stories for her own son. The restless child finds a chance to create his own stories when his grandfather (Bodjie Pascua), comes up with a game. They fill an old milk can with pieces of paper, each containing a word which will be a “story-starter”. Tales of heroes and villains, magic and places fill up the child’s imagination. But the child’s made-up story is in need of a happy ending. Now, it depends on the storyteller mother to create the greatest ending of them all.

    To everyone calling these short films flops, eww, walang dating, etc… You should’ve seen SM Megamall Cinema 3. First screening pa lang kanina, halos puno na ang loob. Several hours later, marami pa ring lumilinya for it and a lot of people were denied entrance dahil wala na ring space for standing. That’s how SUCCESSFUL it was.

    People, don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
