As a mom, I’ve been very sensitive about movies concerning babies or children. And by sensitive, I mean I become a CRY BABY hahaha! I’m curious as to what to expect from this CINEMALAYA FINALIST MOVIE directed by Janice O’Hara. But I’ve been hearing nothing but positive things about it!
Sundalong Kanin is now showing in all Ayala Malls at 4pm, Greenbelt 3 at 4pm, ATC cinema 4 at 4PM. Come and watch and support the Philippine movie industry!
The movie sets back in 1941 when the Philippines was caught in a war between other countries, and sadly, innocent people were being killed. But in the small town of San Nicolas, four boys (Badong, Carding, Benny, and Nitoy) felt that this was an opportunity to prove that they were mature enough to fight for their country.
About the Director:
Janice O’Hara was a student of Comparative Literature at UP Diliman. She dropped out of college to work even before graduating and started as a concept developer in ABS-CBN.
Then she became a writer for a horror show called “Nginiig!”, and other shows such as “Super Inggo,” Kung Fu Kids,” “Alyna,” “Nasaan ka Elisa?,” and the recently ended “Maria Mercedes.”
Janice's first Cinemalaya film experience started when she wrote the screenplay for “Ang Paglilitis ni Andres Bonifacio,” which was directed by Mario O’Hara. The year after that, she was a consultant on the film of of Joseph Laban called “Cuchera”.
This year proves to be a big year for Janice as she takes a break from her teleseryes and moves on to the big screen by directing “Sundalong Kanin,”,a finalist in this year’s Cinemalaya Festival.
