QUEZON CITY, Philippines – On Saturday, June 29, at Dolphy Theater in ABS-CBN Compound, the grand press conference, ‘Tuhog’ director Veronica ‘Roni’ Velasco is all praises for her two actors, theater artists—Eugene Domingo and Leo Martinez at the same time for their professionalism in doing the film.
Given only a limited time to shoot the project for 22 days, Direk Roni says, “Both Eugene and Tito Leo were very professional. It is such a joy to work with them.”
The main three characters are a middle-aged woman named Fiesta (Eugene Domingo), an old and retired family patriarch Tonio (Leo Martinez), and a lad named Caloy (Enchong Dee).
Present in the press con were Direk Enrico Santos, screenwriter Jinky Laurel, Empress Schuck, Enchong Dee, Eugene Domingo, Jake Cuenca, director Veronica Velasco, and Leo Martinez.
This dark comedy flick produced by Skylight Films was supposedly an entry to the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival, but failed to make the cut. It will finally be showing on July 17 in cinemas nationwide.
