Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), headed by its general manager Alexander F. Balutan is staging series of block screenings for the Danni Ugali debut film The Maid in London which gave Andi Eigenmann the best actress award at the International Film Festival Manhattan in New York last October 17.
The series of block screenings is FREE for all audiences who want to catch the 2018 film especially those who missed it during its regular run.
Its main objective in showing the film is to share the story to senior citizens, women’s organizations and for those who value their families.
The screenings will be in selected Robinsons MovieWorld cinemas.
The film is set on the following dates, time and cinemas:
- Friday | 7 December, 7pm at Cinema 9, Robinson’s Galleria
- Sunday | 9 December, 1pm at Cinema 7, Robinson’s Place Las Piñas
- Tuesday | 11 December, 1pm at Cinema 4, Robinsons Calasiao, Pangasinan
The BL Panganiban-based film may not entirely or directly tell the stories of the characters portrayed by the actors but the struggles, the adventures and the misfortunes were based on historical human dramas of undocumented migrants who eventually turned out to be victims of human trafficking and labor violations abroad.
The Maid in London is striking because of how it attempted to present the sad plight of Filipinos who were forced to seek greener pastures abroad; leaving behind their respective families; and hoping to ensure a better future for their loved ones. The lives of the three undocumented migrants—Margo, Faye and Nido portrayed by Eigenmann, Alexis Navarro and Joshua De Guzman reflected the ordeals of undocumented migrant individuals in London in particular.
The filmmaker expresses gratitude to the following individuals who extended their support for this initiative: Prego Jeans Ph, Ms Rhea Tan of Beautéderm Corporation, Mahlord Productions, Nonie Nicasio, Jude Cartalaba, Chester Gutierrez, Nomel Perez, Annie Magnabihon of Robinsons Cinema, Ms. Aki Galicia-Tsuji, Dr. Shirwel Dagasdas of Revisage Skin Care and Mr. Joel Pastores.
