Juday stars in Marawi siege-themed movie ‘Bayang Magiliw’
Drama queen Judy Ann Santos is set for a big screen comeback via the Marawi siege-themed film, “Bayang Magiliw.”
Santos plays the wife of the character of actor Allen Dizon. She is a Muslim community worker while Dizon portays the role of a soldier assigned in Mindanao at the height of the Marawi siege.
The movie predominantly resolves two illnesses. One, the couple is being challenged with coping and rearing for a child who is sick with cancer. On the other hand, the couple face challenges as they try to live and deal with the socio-political conflicts they are experiencing in the war-torn city of Marawi.
The movie is directed by no less than internationally and critically acclaimed film director Brillante Mendoza.
Santos has just got off from a highly successful movie called “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” where she was top-billed with Kapamilya actress Angelica Panganiban. /jpv
