Why is Bicol economically poor? Because Bicolanos are rich on other things that include, among others, artistry. As proof of this, Bicol was able to nurture actors and actresses, singers and songwriters, and even producers.
To date, the region is continually cuddling and nurturing a breed of artists. For the Cinemalaya 2019, a number of entries from Bicol passed the screening with ten included in the Cinemalaya Campus Short Shorts Competition. These included “Bingwit”by John Cyrus Buenavente of Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges which was shown in select theaters nationwide last August 7 to 13.
Bingwit is a one-minute film that is validates the saying “What goes around, comes around”.
