Nora Aunor Predicted This Early To Win Best Actress In The Metro Manila Filmfest For Her Tour De Force Portrayal Of A Grieving Wife & Mother In 'Kabisera'

NORA AUNOR is touted this early to be the front runner as best actress in the Metro Manila Filmfest for her crackerjack performance as a mother who lost her husband and sons violently in the tour de force drama that deals with extra judicial killings, “Kabisera”, directed by Real Florido and Arturo San Agustin. “Naku, hindi ko po iniisip yun,” says Ate Guy at the film’s presscon at Salu Restaurant.

“Basta I’m proud of this movie at masasabi kong sa dinami-rami ng nagawa kong mga pelikula, this is one of the best at maipagmamalaki ko talaga. Batay ito sa isang real life story tungkol sa trahedya ng isang inang sunod-sunod na nawalan ng asawa at mga anak at ang kanyang struggles in her quest for justice. Pampamilya ito and teaches good family values kaya bagay na bagay sa Kapaskuhan because Christmas is for the whole family.”

Co-starring with Ate Guy in this movie are Ricky Davao as her husband, plus JC De Vera, Jason Abalos, and two kids of veteran filmmaker Arturo San Agustin, “Kabisera’s” producer co-director, RJ Agustin and Alex (a girl) San Agustin, as the four children of Nora and Ricky. Also in the cast are Victor Neri, RJ Agustin, Ronwaldo Martin, Kiko Matos, Perla Bautista, Ces Quesada, Karl Medina, Coleen Perez, and Rhen Escano.

“Kabisera” was first presented to the Metro-Manila Filmfest last year where it was rejected as a script. Now, they submitted the completed film and it was accepted as an official entry, making this a vindication of the setback the project earlier suffered. In Tagalog, “Kabisera” means the capitol of a province. But in a family, it means the head of the dining table. In the movie, find out what happens when Nora Aunor takes the head seat on the “Kabisera” of their family table after her husband is killed.
