Allen Dizon Is A Polygamist And A Coffin Maker In His Two New Films

AFTER HIS CRACKERJACK portrayal of an abusive soldier who kills his lover in “Lauriana”, Allen Dizon is all set to do two new movies that are bound to be talked about. First is “Sitio Camcam”, which is about the evils spawned by patriarchy and patronage politics in our society, even in the lower social classes. Allen plays Johnny, a local kingpin in a slum area with three wives: Jean Garcia, Sunshine Dizon and LJ Reyes. This is written by Jerry Gracio and directed by Joel Lamangan, produced by Mrs. Baby Go’s BG Productions.

Allen’s other movie will be filmed entirely in Kapampangan, “Ing Magkakabaung (The Coffin Maker)”, produced by Ferdinand Lapuz and to be directed by Jason Paul Laxamana who made waves in the last Cinemalaya with his acclaimed film on internet scams, “Babagwa”. This will be shot on location at Brgy. San Vicente in Pampanga which is well known for their casket industry.

The story is about a negligent father haunted by a mixture of guilt and remorse over the untimely death of his eight year daughter. Eager to move on with his life, he finds it hard not only to have his daughter's body buried but also to forget his culpability as the person to be blamed for his daughter's death.

“I feel so lucky na kasisimula pa lang ng bagong taon, heto’t may dalawa na agad na magaganda pelikulang dumating sa akin,” says Allen. “I promised to do my best para magampanan effectively ang very challenging roles that they assigned to me.”

Allen’s other movie, “Migrante”, with Jodi Sta. Maria which was filmed in Israel, will also soon be released theatrically.
