“Dinig Sana Kita” (If I knew what you said) Trailer

Guys, please watch “Dinig Sana Kita”, a touching love story between a deaf dancer and a rocker girl who became close to each other while staying in a Baguio camp. Learn more about deaf performers from Dulaang Tahimik ng Pilipinas (Silent Theater Philippines) and featuring a special appearance of the band Sugarfree. The Cinemalaya foundation chose this film as one of the Top 10 Finalists for this year’s Full-length feature category megged by award winning director Mike E. Sandejas.

The digital film stars the filmmaker’s daughter Zoe Sandejas and a talented good-looking deaf Romalito Mallari. Rome, as he was fondly called, is a veteran in stage plays. The last time I watched him perform was during the “Dulac, Leyte 1595” presentation at UP Church of the Risen Lord grounds in 2005 where he portrayed as a Jesuit priest.

Here is the theatrical trailer:

This film together with nine other Cinemalaya 2009 winners will be shown from July 17-26 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Roxas Blvd., Pasay City. Let us support our very own Filipino Indie films. 🙂

      I love it. I hope there will be more films about the deaf youths, it helps them be more known to the society and people will get to learn more from them and even get more friendly to them and back. ;D I met these group in 2007,I mean rome´s group and I fell in love with them, the way they talk to each other, it´s very different from those normal. I htink they speak more heartily. I was surprised with this movie, that someone could relate to them, I wish them best and that they´d get most jobs they want and fulfill dreams. Mabuhay ka Mike. ; )

    i watched this film yesterday and i think it was amazing! it was one of the best films i’ve watched at the cinemalaya.

    I am glad that this film made it to the full-length features otherwise, this year would be a little too commercialized and lame.. (sorry. but i think there are a lot more stories worth to be featured like Dinig sana kita). Anyway, this film truly awaken the crybaby in me in good ways. i can’t remember the last time i shed a tear for a film as good as this one. But it was not the crying part that made me fall in love in this one. I admire how they portrayed the struggles the youth of today encounters and the chance for the deaf to be heard. Thank you to the makers of this film for letting us hear the unheard and letting our voices be heard in ways more creative than speaking to reach out to our brothers and sisters. God bless Direk Mike!

    The “Dinig Sana Kita” cinematology was a great experience. I honor the brains and the hearts of the film. It was a big success bringing the HIs and the hearing in one theater.

    SALUDO PO AKO SA INYO. 🙂

  12. Lopez

    I’m a student in Laguna, and I’m just wondering, when will this film be showing here in the province (just recently read about it), since I don’t have time to go to Manila. Maybe you could held the movie screening on U.P.L.B. or Letran Calamba. By the way, I’m a Letranite. Thanks.

    DINIG SANA KITA will have a weeklong theater run on Aug 19-25 @ Robinson’s Galleria INDIESINE

    Congratulations Mr. Mike Sandejas for a job well done.
    I’ve watched it together with my classmates in Humanities Class last Aug. 3, 09, despite the rain and super long line We really love and appreciate it and even try to use sign language the day after. eg. “friend” , Mom, Dad and Im Sorry. We really felt the deepest feelings of the characters, the story and you as well for the deaf people. Im proud of you po “nabibigyang Pansin ninyo ang mga taong ito.” god bless!

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you’re going to have a DVD copy of the movie that I can purchase. I really love to watch it though I am overseas right now. 😦 I really heard its a must-see film. Its not the usual mushy love story that I am always seeing.

    Thanks. More power! 🙂

    Cheers,
    Grace

    hi…

    where could i watch the whole film?
    from pampanga pa po kasi ako.

  17. Ryan Gillego

    Congratulations to Mr. Mike Sandejas, Romalito Mallari, Zoe Sandejas and Rober Cena!!! What an absolutely great movie!

    I particularly love the last few scenes while Sugarfree was singing the main theme. The flashback scenes really made me cry. I guess even how tough you are, you’ll be moved – the tears will naturally flow out of your eyes.

    I recommend this movie to everyone especially to the younger generation. You can still catch it today at Robinsons Galleria IndieCinema. I just hope Robinsons would extend this movie until next week so that many can still catch this great movie.

    Good luck in the upcoming Brussels International Film Festival!!!

    hello.

    san po pwedeng makakuha ng dvd/cd nto?

  19. Kiko Santos

    any chance for a dvd release soon?

    I just watched the film in the International Film Festival in Cleveland, OH and I was very impressed with the quality of the film and the way the story was told. Besides the social, political, and romantic themes in the movie, what stood out to me the most was the soundtrack and how it played around with various noises to help convey the feelings of the characters.
    Great job and I hope this story is heard by an even wider audience.

    Hi,
    I just watched this last night at the San Diego Asian Film Festival. I am Filipino-American and married to a Deaf man. My husband was adopted. So, we related to this film on different levels. We are hoping to make a trip to schools for the Deaf in Manila in early 2012. This film has inspired us even more. Thank you for your work and effort to educate others about deaf and hearing. God bless you.
