Juday embarks on movie marathon
As expected, the crowd went wild (read: cell phone-snapshot crazy) upon seeing actress Judy Ann “Juday” Santos, who attended the gala screening of David Corpuz and Cenon Palomares’ “Kusina,” with husband Ryan Agoncillo in tow, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) on Tuesday.
Santos later posted on Instagram that she couldn’t sleep after watching the magic-realist drama, an entry in this year’s Cinemalaya. “Adrenaline still high,” she quipped.
She has blocked off an entire day to watch other fest entries and experience the Cinemalaya movie marathon for herself.
Filmmaker Jose Javier Reyes said of Santos’ performance in “Kusina”: “She is in a league all her own … They don’t make actresses like her anymore. Give her a phonebook to read and she will deliver an award-worthy, original performance.”
Due to audience demand, “Kusina” will have an additional screening tomorrow, 12:45 p.m. at the CCP Main Theater.
