This refreshing and sweet coming-of-age story delights in the thrill of first love and pre- adolescent passion. Twelve-year-old Anita falls in love with the stunning, and much older, Pilar who has returned to their village after being away for 10 years. Upon arrival sweet and loveable Anita declares, “That is the girl I’m going to marry.” With amazing performances by three 12-year-old Filipino actors, this film is a rich and warm tale that will delight all audience members and keep you in awe of those heartfelt characters. Anita’s Last Cha-Cha is truly a festival treat for HRFF! Continues to collect multiple festival awards since its premiere at the Cine Filipino Film Festival where it won best picture. Recently the film won special mention for Best Picture at the 2014 Osaka Asian Film Festival.
