FEATURED STORIES

It’s about this beautiful woman, who happens to be the mother of my children. @yanyuzon @evan.aranas @munkeymusic

A post shared by Dingdong Dantes (@dongdantes) on

While the brief video honors all mothers, Dantes added that it is also “about this beautiful woman, who happens to be the mother of [his] children.”

The short film stars Rivera under the direction of her husband as they interpret Yan Yuzon’s poem titled “Maliit Na Bagay”. The piece, set to music by Vincent A. De Jesus (@munkeymusic) opens with a line that goes “Ang aking mga kamay ay sanay sa paggawa ng maliit na bagay,” recited by Rivera.

(My hands are used to doing small things.)

The poem by the former Pupil guitarist then speaks of other small, mundane tasks that mothers do for their children such as preparing meals, cleaning after them and teaching them. Each line is accompanied by scenes of Rivera doing chores and watching over her kids, Zia and Ziggy.

After noting the various things a mother does, Rivera asks, “Maliit na bagay — ngunit saan nagmumula?”

(Small things — but where do they come from?)

“Sa pag-ibig na sa lawak ay higit pa sa daigdig, malalim pa sa dagat at mataas pa sa langit,” Rivera recited.

(From a love that is wider than the universe, deeper than the sea and higher than the heavens.)

Along with Yuzon and de Jesus, the couple worked with film editor Evan Aranas in making the project. JB
