2016 QC International Film Festival: ‘Patintero’ Ang Alamat Ni Meng Patalo

Movies geared towards children are a rarity in Philippine cinema. That is why the new kid movie “Patintero: Ang Alamat Ni Meng Patalo” is such a refreshing break from the norm.

‘Patintero’: Ang Alamat ni Meng Patalo is the winner of the Audience Choice Award and Gender Sensitivity Award at the 2016 QC International Film Festival

“Patintero” tells the story of Meng, a young girl who assembles a group of neighborhood ‘losers’ so they can compete in the biggest patintero competition. More than its laugh-out-loud moments, the movie is rife with coming-of-age themes of friendship, camaraderie, and sportsmanship. Best of all, it carries a strong anti-bullying message for the youth.
