About the Film:

Part of the 2015 Filipino Film Festival

Directed by Milo Sogueco. Philippines. 2014. 120 mins. Filipino with English subtitles.

Imelda is indifferent towards shoes (unlike the former Philippine First Lady). To her, they are fraught with the bittersweet nostalgia of childhood, one that was marred by a difficult relationship with her shoemaker father, Romeo. Growing up, all of hers were handmade by him. Now a mature woman, she takes a pivotal call from the morgue, spurring her search for the perfect pair of shoes for her dead father. The deeper she searches for the perfect shoes, the more she finds herself. Mariquina is a restrained, touching, and elegant look at family ties and the passage of time.
