It’s 2018!!!

This film was shown last June 19 before the officers of Zonta Women’s Club of Makati led by a friend, Corito Llamas, the group’s incoming President. One of the members was Ms. Tess Herbosa, a Rizal descendant. She introduced me as the Guest Speaker for that day, which really surprised me. I thought that when Corito asked me to join them, it was just to share about documentary filmmaking since they are interested to have a documentary of their own.

Last year, also on June 19, 2017, Ultimo Adios in FSL was shown at the UP Film Center under the auspices of J. Moreno Foundation, Inc. led by Founder-Director of the UPFC, Ms. Virginia R. Moreno.
