MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio recently graced the premiere of the digitally-restored and remastered version of Maalaala Mo Kaya The Movie, produced by Star Cinema 21 years ago.

Joining Santos-Concio in the special screening held at the University of the Philippines’ Cine Adarna was director Olivia Lamasan, who made her film directorial debut with ABS-CBN’s film outfit via the said film, and original cast members Aiko Melendez, Richard Gomez, Robert Arevalo and Caridad Sanchez.

In an interview, Santos-Concio expressed her support for the film restoration efforts led by ABS-CBN Film Archives head Leo Katigbak.

“The restoration project is doing a great thing because we are bringing back to life the cinema classics for the younger generation, for them to appreciate good storytelling and performances and understand the culture and history of our people. This is great legacy of ABS-CBN for the youth,” said Santos-Concio.

Lamasan, on the other hand, said, “I was given a chance to direct for television via Maalaala Mo Kaya and after a year, my career as a film director was jumpstarted via Maalaala Mo Kaya The Movie,” Lamasan shared.

Maalaala Mo Kaya The Movie, which tells the story of two mothers fighting for the same child, is among the 82 films that have been restored by ABS-CBN Film Archives, in collaboration with Central Digital Labs, since it started its restoration project in 2011.
