Maris Racal, Sanya Lopez, Zanjoe Marudo laud their MMFF movie ‘Isa Pang Bahaghari’

It’s not every day you get to work with the Superstar Nora Aunor and director Joel Lamangan in a film that also tackles socially relevant issues like the LGBTQIA+. And with the success of ‘Rainbow Sunset,’ the conversation of stories of the LGBTQIA+ members during their older years should continue.

‘Isa Pang Bahaghari’ tells the story of a former seaman long presumed dead who returns to the Philippines and tries to reconnect with his wife and three children with the help of his gay best friend.

When asked why people should watch their film in the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival:

Zanjoe: “Dapat nilang panoorin lahat. Pero unang una, it’s a celebration diba, tuwing pasko at binigyan tayo ng MMFF ng iba’t ibang klaseng pelikula, iba’t ibang genre, so pwede sila pumili. So, isa siyang celebration sa akin, hindi competition.”

Maris: “I’m all for celebrating all the movies kasi it would really help the industry kapag tangkilikin talaga siya ng mga tao. If edge po, maganda po kasi ang material, ‘yung story and chemistry at galing ng buong cast. And excited din po akong mapanood ‘yung napakagandang love story na ‘to. It’s all about pagpaparaya, nakaka-inspire siya. And it talks about a lot of problems, ‘yung mga nangyayari sa reality, may mga struggles lahat ng characters. Hindi lang siya may angle about the LGBTQIA+, about family din po siya.”

Sanya: “Hindi ko pa napapanood ‘yung sa iba pero dapat talagang tangkilikin ang pelikulang Pilipino at masasabi ko lang, napanood ko kasi ‘yung Isa Pang Bahaghari ngayon at sobrang ganda. Nagulat ako sa mga eksena sa bandang huli. Ang ganda ng story dapat ‘di nila sayangin, ‘yun lang ang masasabi ko.”

The film stars Nora Aunor, Phillip Salvador, Michael de Mesa, Sanya Lopez, Zanjoe Marudo, Joseph Marco with Albie Casino and Maris Racal. Directed by Joel Lamangan from Heaven’s Best Entertainment.
