Director's Statement

Don't Touch Me is a great example of guerilla style filmmaking: with a small, tight-knit crew, a colorful cast, and minimal pageantry. Based on 1970s Filipino aesthetics, we tried to keep things accurate in terms of the music and style choices.

Director's Biography

Pasta Groove, aka Paolo Garcia is a music producer, director, editor and vinyl junkie from Manila.

He has performed for numerous festivals, art exhibits and special events. Notable performances include opening DJ sets for DJ Krush, Daedelus, Free the Robots, etc., as well as audio/visual performances for the University of the Philippines, The Japan Foundation and many others.
