Congratulations to our Filipino independent film makers... and to Ms. Gina Pareño... I am an avid fan since i saw her in one of her movies (high school pa yata ako)... but take note ha, im only 34 (hehe)... pero love ko talaga si Ms. Gina... so i hope thru your blog site, or maybe thru you, makarating ang pagbati ko sa kanya... Congratulations, Ms. Gina... thanks to you Mr. Wendell... thanks din sa picture i grabbed from your blog... sana you can give my email add to ms. gina...
neil, thanks so much for dropping by. gina deserves it. finally. she got a major prize. will send your email to tita gina and direk jeff. thanks for dropping by frequently.
i'm just so proud of our friends jeff and leo. ang gagaling nila!mabuhay ang pilipino!
Wow, thanks talaga. I agree with you that Ms. Gina deserves it... i actually saw the docu made in Real People (ABC5) about the film Kubrador. Sayang nga at di ko napanood yun movie mismo. Please inform me naman kung magkaron ulit ng showing nun movie. I hope Ms. Gina will send me an email. Thanks again and more power.
am really proud of them too! perks me up in cold canberra (it's still winter over here).now if we can only get so much commitment from our political and social leaders, things would soar even further.
btw kubrador will have an august screening in the philippines. do ask your friends to watch it. cheers!
i will definitely recommend it, sir wendell... thanks, will look forward to it and will set a reminder on my cel so i wont forget... i really like ms. Gina and actually watch her film lagi... thanks again... Neil
Neil,I forwarded your messages to direk Jeffrey. Hopefully, he will have time topass on your message and email to Tita Gina. I heard she is rushing a MMFF entry under Direk Joey Reyes. Direk Jeff is working on other projects too.By the way, Kubrador will be shown in Metro Manila on 16 August.Thanks for dropping by.
Dear folks, KUBRADOR will be shown in the following theaters starting Aug. 16: SM North EDSA, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, Glorietta 4, Gateway in Cubao, Robinson's Ermita and Cinerama Recto.Please help spread the word. Thanks.-Yora S.
WENDELL!!!so good to find you here in blogger. kumusta na? drop me a line sometime. would love to hear from you. :)god bless and good luck with your phd. Loyva
my god, loyva, how have you been? great to hear from you. keep in touch from time to time. take care!!! w.
Ok naman...di ko pa matapos-tapos ang MA ko sa USTE. I took up creative writing at the CCWS but I haven't enrolled since two sems ago. Medyo tinamad ako. I know, it's a lame excuse but I plan to go back this October. So, you're sick pala. Naku. Sana it goes away soon. I'll be praying for you. God bless, wendell. I'm really glad to be in touch with you again. :)Loyva
thanks loyva!! you certainly made my day. take care.
sir wendell, i grabbed another pic of ms. gina from your blog.. THANKS!.. does she have a solo? just kidding... am really looking forward to the film's showing... cheers!!!
neil, tita gina may have some solo pics but she looked entirely unglamourous because they were stills from the film. she had to look the part. i think it's best to watch the film to appreciate her more. she lost a lot of weight after the film was completed. still, she hasn't lost her charm. i would be happy if people will take some time out to watch kubrador on 14 august. please spread the word around. thanks.
there's nothing to be ashamed of re: tita gina. she is a very good actress. her career highs include working girls, bridal shower and kubrador. she was severely underrated for many years. hopefully, kubrador will pave the way for more quality roles. thanks again for dorpping by!
Congratulations to all involved in the making of Kubrador. How can we bring that film here in Melbourne? Maybe in next year's Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF)? Congrats Jeffrey! and to Ms Gina Pareno - A well deserved recognition. Let's celebrate Pinoy's film culture re-birth.
alfred, just sent SMS message to the director jeffrey jeturian and production designer leo abaya. they are close friends of mine. they will attempt to send it to sydney and melbourne. hopefully, the film will get accepted. tita gina p. delivers her greatest performance in this film.
Did they send it to Cannes or Venice or some other festivals here in europe?
They couldn't. Moscow required a European premiere. Consequently, they are ineligible for Cannes, Berlin and Venice. It was a difficult decision. There's always a possibility of being rejected by the other festivals should you give up Moscow. But it's worth it. Moscow is also an A-festival (where world premieres are usually required of entries in competition). The film got noticed and it's now moving all over the world. So it is just as good as making it there.Tuhog (Jeffrey's 3rd film) had its world premiere in Venice.And yet, Kubrador has eclipsed Tuhog's achievements in so short a time. And that's saying a lot since Tuhog is also a great film.
Finally, after so many attempts to work unsertime (Im from los banos pa kasi kaya i need to snatch some time from my regular working hours... hehe), i was able to watch Kubrador... i felt sorry for my self not catching it on its premier but nonetheless, im so happy to finally see the film... it's a touchy film... lalo na sa part na nagdadasal sya... sabi ko nga sa kasama ko, nakakarelate ako kasi i have titas who were kubradors before... hehe (pero hindi na ngayon)... Ms. Gina is really good, very good kahit noon pa... i first caught her on tv sa movie nya with Dolphy with very young Sheryl Cruz (Meron Akong Nakita)... since then, i fell in love na yata with ms. Gina... kahit pa nakasakay sya sa bilao o kahit nakabakya sya na may magic... hehe... i even have clippings of her kaso nagalit lola ko, itinapon yata... hehe... and now (kasi puro comedy na sya halos, di ba?), i saw that kind of acting from her again and im glad she was recognized for her performance... she really deserves it... i hope she will do more film of the same caliber... and im also praying na sana marecognize naman ng Philippines ang galing nya sa pag-arte... im not sure if she ever won any awards from any of our award giving bodies... again Congratulations Ms. Gina... Congratulation to our indie film makers... more to come please... sorry, sir wendell, napahaba yata... hehe
neilwe have every reason to defend our home-grown talents.tita gina won a best actress award in 1974 or 1975 for jun raquiza's krimen: kayo ang humatol. she got many nominations. i guess with kubrador, she is bound to win more prizes.it's about time that filipinos get to appreciate the best of what we've got. kawawa naman yung magagaling before na hindi man lamang nagkaroon ng opportunities to be recognized.thanks again for dropping by. w.
