“Ang Kwento ni Mabuti,” is an entry by Mes de Guzman in the 1st CineFilipino Film Festival this September. The film stars the one and only Superstar, Ms. Nora Aunor.
Directed by Mes De Guzman, “Ang Kwento ni Mabuti” is a morality tale about Mabuti, a healer who looks at life positively despite her poverty. Everything changes, however, when she accidentally finds a bag containing a huge stash of money. The five million pesos could bring an end to her family’s problems. But is the solution that simple or is it loaded with complications?
Filmed entirely in Nueva Vizcaya, the film marks the first time that Nora speaks Ilocano in the entire movie. Other cast-members are Arnold Reyes, Sue Prado, Mara Lopez, and Ama Quiambao.
“Ang Kwento Ni Mabuti” will have its gala week on September 18-24, 2013 at the Newport Cinemas of Resorts World Manila, Lucky Chinatown Mall and Gateway Cineplex.
