Roselle Marie Abanilla
Selle Abanilla is a BS Biology graduate from Laguna and is currently a healthcare associate in Pasig City. Having grown up with Wansapanataym and Harry Potter to Patintero: Ang Alamat ni Meng Patalo and Apocalypse Child, Selle’s passion for film began when she became a part of the school publication as a writer in college. Her current interests in arthouse cinema blossomed when she attended a talk by Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, later becoming obsessed with the likes of Hirokazu Koreeda, Naoko Ogigami, Hong Sang-soo, Edward Yang, Tsai Ming-Liang, and Aki Kaurismäki. She explores the bliss of mundanity and the ways one overcomes urban exhaustion through handwritten diaries and online writeups available on her personal site — Selyado.
