55Square Café launched their Kwento at Kape series last January 29, 2017 with Rocketsheep Studio headed by Saving Sally creator, Avid Liongoren to show short films and talk about his studio, the recently-concluded MMFF entrant Saving Sally, and the animation industry through Q&A.
The Kwento at Kape series is an ongoing effort by the the café to bring people closer to their passions through casual conversations with practitioners and enthusiasts. The series is ongoing til the midyear, with topics ranging from art, literature, travel, and ecotourism.
For the second installment of Kwento at Kape, 55Square is inviting self-published author and first-time mom, Milki Jorge, to talk about her adventures and mess-adventures with her six-year old K. We are pulled into their world through short and hilarious anecdotes like:
Me: (singing Hello)
K: Mom, is that a lullaby?
Me: Oh, you like it? You want me to sing it to you?
K: No. Can you play Spotify instead?
And anecdotes that tug on your heartstrings, reminding us of what truly matters in the world.
