A transgender sampaguita farmer decided to renovate their neglected kitchen as soon as she heard that her son is going home.
Upon learning that their son is coming home after 15 years, Budang and Georgia, transgender farmers from Pampanga, decided to surprise Janjan by renovating their neglected kitchen and gather ingredients so they can cook their favorite dish “con saleng manuk” but things will not work as planned.
REEDEN FAJARDO is a young aspiring Kapampangan filmmaker who grew up in a small barangay in Floridablanca. He is a graduate of BFA in Digital Cinema at Mapua University. He is currently an assistant director trainee and script supervisor in Star Cinema..
“Quing Lalam Ning Aldo” is a documentation of their livelihood, the Sampaguita farming, and the memory of his favourite morning dish after picking Sampaguita, “Con Sale Ebun” which is a soup similar to tinola with lemongrass but replacing chicken with eggs. These memories are the main references in creating this film. This film explores the feeling of nostalgia and incorporates Kapampangan humor.
