Harana is a documentary of the life of farmer Celestino Aniel and fisherman Romeo Bergunio and tricycle driver Felipe Alonso and the journey of Florante, a classically-trained Filipino-American musician who returned to the Philippines and rediscovered traditional Filipino music.

The film is scheduled to be presented at the Cinemalaya Film Festival in the Philippines this month and the Pistahan Festival in San Francisco in August. b
