All is Well at Mowelfund

Finally, my dream movie is now a reality! Thank God! Can't wait for Oct1:)

To celebrate the centennial of Philippine movies, we had the press launch of Ibong Adarna: the Pinoy Adventure at Mowelfund yesterday. Direk Jun explained why this movie is so close to his heart (&to his dad, the great Manuel Conde, who had his own version in the 50's).  He wishes to continue producing quality legendary films for kids and adults alike "to give the audience what they deserve". Highlighting our rich Filipino culture and remarkable tourist destinations with superb special effects, this film would hopefully spark more interest in Adarna and in other Filipino classics outside the classroom.

Aside from getting to watch the trailer of our upcoming movie, it was a pleasant surprise that the Philippine movie's headquarters is now a colorful museum.

Magazine covers of famed loveteams were encased in glass.
I had my picture taken with the original Machete (Cesar Montano), the idyllic wooden statue who became the sculptor's lover.
Look at all these glittering costumes!
These made me wanna shout SuperPAT!!!
They even have swords used in "ancient" movies!

For those who wanna see more or to learn more about Philippine film, you may visit Mowelfund at #66 Rosario Drive corner Ilang-ilang.
