Harana Film Screening

Location: Science Building Tech. BLDG (108)

This movie features Florante Aguilar, a classical guitarist, who returns to the Philippines after the death of his father. He rediscovers the long forgotten tradition of Filipino serenading. Florante is one of the leading figures championing Philippine music arts forms in the U.S. and abroad today. He studied at the Manhattan School of Music and received a degree from the San Francisco Conservatory for Music. Fides Enriquez, the Executive Producer, is an ethnographer, photographer, film documentatarian living in the San Francisco Bay area.

Harana is the traditional form of courtship in the Philippines. It was widely practiced in the past, with a set of protocols, a code of conduct and a specific style of music. Florante traveled to remote provinces where he discovers three surviving practitioners of harana. Although this practice was widely known in the Philippines, there is little documented history.

This event is sponsored by the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Filipino American Heritage Month (FAHM) Committee, Filipino Studies Program, Minority Access & Achievement Program, Bayanihan Club, County of Hawaiʻi Council, and the Kalani Retreat Center.
