Sigwa and Damgo ni Eleuteria vindicated in Golden Screen awards

TWO FILMS ARE RIGHTFULLY vindicated in the Golden Screen Awards that will be held at Teatrino Greenhills on April 2, Joel Lamangan’s “Sigwa” and Remton Zuasola’s “Damgo ni Eleuteria (Eleuteria’s Dream)”, both nominated as best picture. Lamangan is also nominated as best director while Remton is nominated for best screenplay.

“Sigwa” was an entry in the Cinemalaya Filmfest last July where we thought it deserved to win best picture and best director. But the honors were given to “Donor” and “Two Funerals” that are now both not nominated at all in the Golden Screen. “Sigwa” also got nominations from the Golden Screen for Dawn Zulueta as best actress (we hope she wins), Zsa Zsa Padilla as best supporting actress, and Tirso Cruz III and Allen Dizon as best supporting actors.

“Damgo ni Eleuteria” was an entry in the Cinema One Digital Filmfest last November. It was bested by “Layang Bilanggo” (which we found to have many holes in it) which is now not nominated at all in the Golden Screen. “Damgo” also got nominations for its unknown cast members: Donna Isadora Gimeno as best actress, Daday Melgar as best supporting actress, and Gregg Tecson as breakthrough performance by an actor.
