Tuesday, February 5, 2013
ANGELES CITY — Kapampangan Independent movie director Brillante Mendoza's award winning film "Thy Womb" will be shown at SM City Clark's Cinema 4 to give the people of Pampanga another chance to watch the much talked about film that has been reaping awards both here and abroad.
SM City Clark Public Relations officer Venus Manalang said the film will be shown this Friday with screening times 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Mendoza is expected to personally grace the event.
"This is to give people another opportunity to watch this very good film. We hope to bring its message again to another set of viewers this Friday," Manalang said.
Earlier, Senator Loren Legarda lauded Mendoza's latest film, saying it is a creative and fearless contribution to Filipino filmmaking. Legarda said the film deserved the seven awards it garnered at the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
Mendoza won Best Production Design and Best Director, while Odyssey Flores won Best Cinematography; Henry Burgos, Best Original Story; and Nora Aunor, Best Actress. The film also won the Gender Sensitivity Special Award for the Mainstream Category, and the Gatpuno Villegas Award.
The film revolves around a simple yet riveting story which Mendoza said shows a childless couple, with a middle–aged woman Shaleha Sarail (played by superstar Nora Aunor), a local midwife in Tawi–Tawi, who cannot bear a child.
