According to Juned , “the films Noli and Fili are worth watching because of De Leon’s visual style of storytelling that embellishes the scene with emotions. The fact that it was done in Black and White only heightens the visual impact. Another reason it is worth watching is that there are only a limited copies of the films – Noli was restored in Germany while Fili seems to have disappeared into the past with only bits and pieces surfacing from time to time. And that is why when one or both of the films are shown it is worthwhile to watch it.”

So grab the chance to watch this vintage production.
