THY WOMB in Davao

Just recently Nora Aunor was here to have her RED-CARPET PREMIER NIGHT of "THY WOMB" held  at SM Lanang Premier.



It was a bad day for her because she lost her cellphone at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, but nevertheless she ended up to have a happy day for winning BEST ACTRESS in 6th ASIA PACIFIC SCREEN AWARDS or APSA in Brisbane, Australia.  And her director Brilliante Mendoza won BEST DIRECTOR AWARD for the flick "THY WOMB".



THY WOMB is the year's most internationally acclaimed Filipino Film all taken at TAWI-TAWI.


An exquisite film that reflects the extravagance of linguistic diversity among the people of the cultural minorities of Tawi-Tawi, among them the Sama tribe of the Bajaus played by the major characters: "The beauty of the Sama homelands is
undeniably a major attraction of the film but the beauty of its languages will most likely go undetected by its viewers, especially for its international audience...The six languages in the film are an accurate reflection of the linguistic diversity of the region as well as the entire Philippines. This is my first time to see so many languages woven into one film so seamlessly. It better reflects the cultural reality of language swapping that occurs in the Philippines than the usual all Tagalog programming found in Philippine movies and TV."

It is a film base in gratitude and goodwill.  It also depicts the life of marginalize people while orienting itself to the country's goal for progress and peace.

Watch the video of the victorious moments at the national premiere of "Thy Womb" in Davao City where the trophies for best actress (Ms. Nora Aunor) and best director (Brillante Mendoza) from the 6th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) were handed out prior to the screening.

  5. The production design remind me, of all things, 'Lawrence of Arabia' for some reason. Strange huh? It's probably the shawl.

    To seamlessly merge culture via multilingual dialogue, star talents, and local scenery together is a feat only a man like Brilliante Mendoza can pull off.

  10. The first thing I did when I read the first paragraph of your post is the date. I thought this is an old post because I didn't know that Nora is back to acting.

    It looks like an excellent movie. Nora is a brilliant actress so it's not a surprise that she bagged awards.

    A Nora Aunor is what the kind of actress that the PH movie industry lacks today.
