    I'm thrilled to watch the 2nd film mentioned above, " Gatilyo ng Baril" because it is a true-story based film. On the other hand, my heart breaks everytime I see a scene of abortion like what the " Sanctissima" depicts.

  2. Schedule and ticket prices are out! Been checking the available dates since the other day. Hope I could file for a one day leave from work to avail the one day pass

  3. Exciting! Sadly, we can't watch the screening of these films as we are in Cebu. 🙁

  4. Awww… That's sad.
    Hope they'll have more screenings in more places just like what they had way back 2011
