It’s been awhile since I visited UPSTREAM, the last time was when I binge-watch a lot of MMFF entries last December. For starters, UPSTREAM is the newest Video on Demand platform created by Filipinos, for Filipinos. Since Pandemic, I relied on most of the streaming platforms to provide me entertainment at home and glad that UPSTREAM stood there during our trying times particularly in movie industry.
This month, another interesting premiere is about to happen on UPSTREAM. I’m talking about the upcoming film, “A Girl And A Guy” by Erik Matti. This is the first UPSTREAM Original. Let’s watch the official trailer below:

After a string of horror and action films, award-winning director Erik Matti has gone back to the world of romance and whipped up a modern tale of young adults navigating the tricky world of relationships, connection, and intimacy in today’s society.
Was able to attend the grand virtual conference featuring the cast of the film and I would say that this movie will definitely change our perspective about how we messed up our life when we were 20s? A Girl and A Guy will give its viewers an in-depth look at the dynamics at play in the messy and complicated yet still fun arena of love and dating through the perspective of Fiona, an ambitious advertising production staff who has big dreams in the field of filmmaking; and Raf, a charming and laid-back marketing associate who has no plans for his future.
The cast of the film is composed of a strong and exciting bunch of new stars that came from esteemed and diverse backgrounds starting with up and coming actors Alexa Miro and Rob Gomez who played the titular roles of Fiona and Raf, respectively. They are joined by Pau Benitez, Candice Ramos, Rosh Barman, Sarah Holmes, Carlo Tarobal, Emilio Francisco, Chloe Reyes, Roeder Camanag, Donna Cariaga, Marina Benipayo, and Shaun Salvador to complete the ensemble.
