Celebrities, filmmakers unite in 'Gabi ng Himala' for the benefit of film industry workers

Some of the country's biggest stars and award-winning filmmakers will gather for “Gabi ng Himala: Mga Awit at Kuwento,” a fundraising project that aims to provide aid for displaced workers from the film industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

A collaboration between Sagip Pelikula, Lockdown Cinema Club, and the Ricky Lee Scriptwriting Workshop, the online event will feature reenactments of the Ishmael Bernal film "Himala" with Maja Salvador, Jodi Sta. Maria, Nadine Lustre, Shaina Magdayao, Iyah Mina, and Raymond Bagatsing. Each of them will be delivering their own interpretations of Elsa's iconic “Walang himala!” monologue. We'll also enjoy performances from Piolo Pascual as Orly, Angelica Panganiban as Nimia, and Tom Rodriguez as the Priest.

 

The original Elsa, Nora Aunor, will also be part of a panel discussion and Q&A session with the film’s producer Charo Santos-Concio, cast member Joel Lamangan, and writer Ricky Lee.

Critically acclaimed filmmakers, including Bb. Joyce Bernal, Lav Diaz, Ricky Davao, Sigrid Andrea Bernardo, Petersen Vargas, and ABS-CBN Films Managing Director Olivia M. Lamasan, will direct the scenes.

Also part of the event are Lea Salonga, Bituin Escalante, and Aicelle Santos, who will perform songs from “Himala: Isang Musical."

 

The fundraising event will premiere this Tuesday, April 21, at 8pm, and will be livestreamed on Star Cinema’s Youtube channel. You can also watch it on Sinehub (https://www.facebook.com/SineHub/), Star Cinema, ABS-CBN Film Restoration and Lockdown Cinema Club's Facebook pages.

See you tonight, Kapamilya!
