The UP Film Institute is holding move-over screenings for this year’s Cinemalaya. One of the movies that will be screened is Cris Pablo’s Quickie, starring Andro Morgan and newcomer Topher Baretto. It’s the story of a family breadwinner who discovers the joys and thrills of quick sex from chance encounters, as an escape from the harsh realities of life.  That is, until one chance encounter deepens into a relationship.  Quickie will be shown on August 23 [Saturday] 7.30 pm. Uncut, of course.

Andro Morgan does Quickie

On an early morning drive to Manila a week ago, I saw a strikingly tall and appealing guy walking along South Super Highway, sweaty in his basketball barangay liga outfit.  I recognized him as Andro Morgan, who once appeared butt-naked in the video Masahe M2M. He’s been in lots of bikini contests [and won some] and lots of indie movies [and wowed some]. So he is already a veteran in the biz, we can safely say so.  Now, he is in a new movie called Quickie [check out the blurb:  Mabilis. Masarap. Masakit. Minadaling Pag-Ibig] from Sinehan Digitales and Queeriosity Video Project.  The movie, directed by Cris Pablo [Duda, Bilog , Bathhouse, Pitong Dalagita, Moreno] ,  will have a July 17 preem at the Cinemalaya 2008 and an August 9 Director’s Cut screening at the UP Film Center.
