Pagdating sa dulo ishmael bernal
For our characters, there is no way out; their dreams fulfilled are their own funerals. It will be shown on June 29, 3pm at the Cinematheque Centre in Kalaw St.
The restored version of Ishmael Bernal’s first film “Pagdating sa Dulo,” starring Rita Gomez, was recently shown at the Cinematheque Center in Kalaw Avenue, Manila, to launch the World Premieres Film Festival.
Much can be said, of course, about Gomez’ spell-binding portrayal of the ambitious Chin/Paloma Miranda.

Gomez was 36 when she did Paloma Miranda in PAGDATING SA DULO, but she looks like she’s a ravishing gal of 28.
Vargas is dashing; a screen-thrill and a sight to follow.
By the end of the opening scene, Chin is back in the same gripped frame, however this time, bare and exposed. As she climbs the stairs to her bedroom, Bernal strategically positions his camera at the top of the staircase and we see Chin drag herself as she climbs. Bernal positions his camera again in his strategic position on the top of the staircase and we watch Pinggoy climb the same path laboriously. And so as promised, Bernal tells how Chin made her way up from a regular striptease to becoming the movie star Paloma Miranda .
Both Bernal and Gomez take their time, and we watch Chin painfully scramble as she walks up to her bedroom. Pinggoy, her lover also got his break as a sexy actor and eventually made a name for himself.
