CAAM Presents: An exclusive Bay Area screening of Philippine film RAKENROL

GET READY TO RAK! CAAM Presents an exclusive Bay Area screening of critically acclaimed director Quark Henares’ latest film.

GET READY TO RAK! One Night Only! An exclusive Bay Area screening of critically acclaimed director Quark Henares’ latest film.

RAKENROL is an indie rock love story and comedic coming-of-age tale about the binding power of music. This Philippine feature-length film follows the adventures of Odie and his best friend Irene as they form a band and bring together a motley crew of characters—teenage deadbeat, ex-punk guitarist, and former child star. Proceeds from this event benefit two San Francisco-based arts organizations— BINDLESTIFF STUDIO and KULARTS.

RAKENROL chronicles the band’s journey as they try to make a place in the city’s indie scene and face off with samurai swindlers, narcissistic rock stars, pretentious artists, and bizarre music video auteurs, all in the name of rock and roll.

Ninth Street Independent Film Center
145 9th Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
Friday, May 13, 7PM sharp (doors open 6:30pm)

Q&A with the director will take place immediately after the screening.

Then head over with us to Mercury Lounge SF for a RAKENROL after-party with performances by The Skyflakes, an all-Pinoy indie-rock set by DJ Un-G (Gary Gabisan), and other special SURPRISE guests!

Advance tickets ($20) include admission to both screening and after-party. Due to the limited number of seats, advance purchases are HIGHLY suggested.

Tickets can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets

  •  I teach a class at USF, “Filipinos and Ethnic Media”  and yesterday was our last class.  I would like to see if my students can view this film tomorrow in lieu of a written exam, at a much discounted rate of $20.  I have 9 plus myself in the class, total 10.  I know its short notice, a day before the event.  We would be more interested in the viewing part rather than the after-party.  Please advise.  Sincerely, Prof. M.L. Mallare, Yuchengco Phil. Studies Program (209) 720-9390 or email at

  • Hi Prof. Mallare,

    I’m afraid we cannot accommodate your request.  Currently the event is sold-out and the theater will be at maximum capacity tonight.
