MANILA—A glimpse of "Mindanao," the Brillante Mendoza movie starring Judy Ann Santos, was released Wednesday.
The gorgeous clip — a music video for the movie's theme song "Itadyak" by Maan Chua — shows off the colorful dances and scenic locations featured in the movie.
It also has Santos acknowledging that she's glad to have had the chance to work with Mendoza, a first for her. "I'm so happy na na-experience ko siya na may lakas pa ako," she said.
Not much is known about "Mindanao," although an official synopsis does read: "Saima is the mother of a cancer-stricken kid and the wife of a medic deployed in a conflict of aggression in southern Philippines. An animation portraying a legendary brother fighting a dragon takes place in the story."
It can be seen on the official website of the 24th Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, where the movie will hold its world premiere. The festival is scheduled to run from October 3 to 12.
