  1. Are any of Gerry de Leon’s films available on DVD? If not, are there any plans to restore his films and have them released on DVD?

    I would certainly enjoy watching his “obra maestras” just in case there will be special screenings again. Please keep me informed.

    Thank you!


  2. I do not know of any existing DVDs… you may get in touch and inquire directly from the Society of Filipino Archivists for Film. They have started restoring some Filipino classic films. I also missed the retrospective showing of Mang Gerry’s movies at the CCP during his Centennial Year.
