Starting today, April 6, the timely family drama ‘Doc’ will screen in select cinemas.
Based on true events, the story revolves around a doctor (Enzo Pineda) at the height of the Covid19 pandemic and how it affected his family.
Being part of the first film to tackle COVID-19 from the first hand experience, from the writer and director, veteran actress Mickey Ferriols shares she is honored to be part of ‘Doc.’ But she also shares that she can also relate to what Atty. Angie de Ramos’ journey with COVID-19 as she is also a survivor of the disease.
“Nagkaroon ako ‘nung January pero Omicron, this year,” Mickey shares.
“Brain fog, tapos parang masakit ‘yung ulo pero thankfully, three days lang ako may sakit. Binantayan ko ng Paracetamol, round the clock tapos sponge bath. After three days, thank God, bumaba naman,” she continues.
It’s also no news that the lead actor of ‘Dok’ got the COVID-19 disease as well.
“It was my brother’s birthday party. Alam naman ninyo minsan kapag nagbi-birthday, minsan nawawala ang pag-iingat natin, dun po ako nahawa, sa bisita. But my dad wasn’t in the area pero somehow, nahawa pa din siya through me. Naagapan namin agad kasi nagkaroon siya ng pneumonia, very minor, pero tinawagan na siya ng doktor na habang maaga pa pumunta na agad siya sa hospital. Kasi karamihan sa atin minsan hinihintay natin na maging malala. I had a little bit of everything: ubo, sipon, diarrhea, pero it all happened within a week, per day, iba-iba ‘yung symptoms,” Enzo shares.
“My dad was admitted for a week. The doctor told him na pwede siyang magsama ng companion basta naka-PPE. So, nagpaalam ako sa dad ko kung pwede bang ako na lang sumama sa kanya. We asked the doctor if pwede bang dalawang COVID positive patients sa isang room, pinayagan kami. So ako ang nag-alaga sa dad ko for a week kahit may COVID din ako,” Enzo continues.
DOK stars Enzo Pineda with LM Mercado, Rob Sy, Aryan Akhtar, Potchi Angeles, and Mickey Ferriols, and introducing Maria de Amos. Written, produced and directed by Atty. Maria Angelica de Ramos.
