THE FIRST documentary about the Philippines’ return to the Venice Biennale after five decades of absence will be aired this week on ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC).

How To Tie A String Around The World will be aired on Sept. 27, 8 p.m., and on Sept. 30, 11:30 a.m.

The Philippine Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Art Biennale, Tie A String Around The World, was curated by Dr. Patrick Flores of the University of the Philippines Vargas Museum, and featured the late national artists Manuel Conde and Carlos Francisco’s film Genghis Khan, Manny Montelibano’s multi-channel video A Dashed State, and Jose Tence Ruiz’s installation titled Shoal.

The documentary was created by Mr. Montelibano.

The Philippines’ participation in the Venice Biennale was a collaboration between the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, the Department of Foreign Affairs, and the Office of Senator Loren Legarda, with the support of the Department of Tourism.

In a statement, Ms. Legarda said that all the other subsequent Philippine pavilions will also have their own documentaries.

In 2016, the Philippines’ first national pavilion for the Venice Architecture Biennale featured the curatorial concept Muhon: Traces of an Adolescent City, by Leandro Locsin, Jr., Sudarshan Khadka, Jr., and Juan Paolo de la Cruz of Leandro V. Locsin Partners. This year, for the 2017 Venice Art Biennale, the curatorial concept of Joselina Cruz, The Spectre of Comparison, is the Philippine Pavilion.
