Davao City 1st District Representative Karlo Nograles, in an Manila Bulletin article, urged Mindanaoan filmmakers to continue making films.
The Davao City politiko is hopeful that Mindanaoan filmmakers can also produce musicals like “Ang Larawan,” “La La Land,” “Changing Partners,” and “Greatest Showman.”
“I’d like to see something like that in Mindanao. Our filmmakers can do it,” Nograles said.
He said filmmakers can draw inspiration from the richness of Mindanao’s diverse culture.
“Sentimyento yan ng mga taga-Mindanao na we have so much to offer—kami ang nagpapakain sa bansa—pero bakit laging kami ang huli? Kaya naman kami, ako, we try to offer avenues for Mindanaoans to shine,” Nograles added.
