Nora Aunor’s Himala returns to the big screen on December 5, 2012

Nov. 02, 2012

In line with the 30th anniversary of Himala (Miracle) that was directed by the late National Artist Ishmael Bernal in 1982 and written Ricky Lee, the film that featured the superstar Nora Aunor and also gave her a best actress award in the 1982 Metro Manila Film Festival will be coming back on the big screen starting December 5, 2012. Himala is one of the films that reach various international film festivals including the Berlin International Film Festival where it became the first Filipino film to be included in the competition section. Aside from that it received Bronze Hugo Award at the 19th Chicago Film Festival and Asia-Pacific Film Festival Special Achievement for Best Depiction of Socially Involved Religion in the same year (1983). And last 2008 Himala receives the award as the Best Asian-Pacific Movie of All Time at the CNN APSA Viewers Choice Award.

Being it is one of the best Filipino films of all time that was crafted with passion and creativity of Bernal, Lee and Aunor; ABS-CBN together with the Central Digital Lab they restored the film and made it HD (High Definition) to make it clearer and fit in the cinema where it will be shown. The restored film of Himala was first previewed at the 69th Venice Film Festival and starting on December 5 Star Cinema will be distributing the film in selected cinemas nationwide.

Himala follows the story of Elsa (Aunor) who lives in a small town named Cupang who allegedly receives a vision from Blessed Virgin Mary in the barren hill where she was found by her adopted mother Aling Saling (Vangie Labalan) when she was a baby. The apparition that she claims that happened to her took place during a solar eclipse. Believing that their town is cursed and the vision was a sign of second chance for everyone, Elsa started faith healing to the local resident of Cupang and later people outside their town joins the pilgrimage hoping to be cured and get answers from their problem.

Elsa became popular not only in Cupang but also in other places that why Orly (Spanky Manikan), a filmmaker gains interest with her story and wanting to do a documentary about her vision and healing activity. Instead of seeing a miracle, Orly met Nimia (Gigi Duenas) one of Elsa’s childhood friends who is now a prostitute revealed their family story after being threatened that club where she is working was ordered by Elsa together with her seven apostles that include Chayong (Laura Centeno) and Sepa (Ama Quiambao). Aside from that hoping to capture an apparition between Elsa and the Blessed Virgin Mary, Orly captured a video of Elsa and Chayong being sexually assaulted by two drugged youths from Manila. Still Elsa despite of vague miracles and visions she was still proclaimed as a saint in the eyes of those who believes in her.

Discover a great story that tackles about faith, truth and lies as Star Cinema brings back a Bernal masterpiece on the big screen and we can all say the famous line of Elsa “Walang himala!! Ang himala ay nasa puso ng tao, nasa puso nating lahat! Tayo ang gumagawa ng mga himala! Tayo ang gumagawa ng mga sumpa at ng mga diyos…” (There is no miracle!! The miracles are in people’s hearts, in all our hearts! We make the miracles! We are the ones who make curses, gods…)

(MOVIE) Ishmael Bernal’s HIMALA restored as new! Opens December 5 in Cinemas NATIONWIDE!


On its 30th year anniversary, watch the restored version of HIMALA in HD on December 5, 2012 in selected cinemas
nationwide.

Himala is a Filipino film directed by the late National Artist Ishmael Bernal of the Philippines in 1982. The film’s script was written by multi-award winner screenwriter Ricky Lee based on a true incident on a teenage girl in Cabra Island in the province of Occidental Mindoro between 1966 and 1967. Sergio Lobo was the Director of Photography.


Himala was filmed entirely in the province of Ilocos Norte in just three weeks with a budget of only ₱ 3 million. The film premiered at the 1982 Metro Manila Film Festival, and in 1983, became the first Filipino film to be included in the “Competition Section” of the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival. Since then, Himala has been exhibited in a number of film festivals around the world.

On November 11, 2008, Himala won the Viewer’s Choice Award for the Best Film of all Time from the Asia-Pacific Region in the 2008 CNN Asia Pacific Screen Awards beating out nine other outstanding movies.(voted by thousands of film fans around the world). The ten finalists were chosen by critics, industry insiders and actors—including Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai.

Philippine superstar Nora Aunor is best known for her performance in the film as the visionary Elsa. Her portrayal is considered by most Filipino critics as the best of her career.

Himala is the first of the 3000+ films to be restored by the ABS-CBN Film Archive and Central Digital Lab, Inc. The restored version premiered at the 69th Venice International Film Festival.

Nora on music comeback: 'Sigurado na'

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/06/2012 11:49 PM | Updated as of 12/06/2012 11:59 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- It cannot wait any longer: next year marks the return of Nora Aunor as the country's "golden voice."

Coming off her string of successes this year as Philippine cinema's "Superstar" -- her role in the Brillante Mendoza film "Thy Womb" has earned international acclaim; "Himala" was released again after 30 years in restored high-definition version -- Aunor is setting sights on finally singing again after a long break from the music scene.


This time around, the veteran actress, 59, is ensuring her comeback concert will actually push through.

"Sigurado 'yun," Aunor was quoted as saying by entertainment news website Philippine Entertainment Portal. "Kakarerin ko na 'yun. Magku-concert na ako sa May 21. Itutuloy ko na."

According to Aunor, she will return to Boston, Massachusetts to undergoing an operation to regain her singing voice. "Alam na nila. Pag-uusapan yung schedule, hindi puwedeng hindi," she said.

In September, the Superstar told radio dzMM that she had intended to put off the procedure, pointing to her thriving showbiz career. Aside from "Thy Womb," Aunor stars in another film entry in the upcoming 38th Metro Manila Film Festival, the Emilio Aguinaldo biopic "El Presidente."

"'Yung therapy ang matagal," she said at the time. "Kasi sayang naman kung mawawala na naman ako, kasi kailangan, sabi ng doctor, pagkatapos ng operation, kailangan mag-therapy ako sa New York, at magse-stay ako syempre."

In January this year, Aunor had a preliminary check-up in, also in Boston, which, at the time, was planned to be followed up with an operation upon her return to the United States.

Aunor's long hiatus from the music scene stems from a botched cosmetic procedure in Japan which allegedly affected her singing voice. She has undergone a number of treatments and operations to regain it.

At the sidelines of the 2012 Ala Eh Festival in Tanauan, Batangas, the province's governor said she is open to doing the planned film, but with certain conditions.

"Sana po someday, sana, sinong may ayaw? Gusto ko rin," Santos told ABS-CBN News on Friday. "Sabi ko nga, importante lang 'yung good script, at the same time, 'yung right timing."

In June this year, Cannes award-winning director Brillante Mendoza confirmed plans to bring together Santos and Aunor for a film, which will also star Kapamilya actor Coco Martin.

Mendoza's latest film, the internationally acclaimed "Thy Womb", stars Aunor. It is among the 8 film entries in the upcoming 38th Metro Manila Film Festival.

While Santos pointed to her being public servant as her top priority at present, she is certain that the "right time" to co-star with Aunor will come.

"Kung magkakaroon ng pagkakataon, why not? Excited ako gumawa ng pelikula kasama ang kumare ko. I'm sure darating 'yun," Santos said.
