Janine Gutierrez was elated to share that she will co-produce a documentary about her grandmother, veteran actress and performer Pilita Corrales, which is already in the works.

“Very excited to announce that we’re working with the amazing [Baby Ruth Villarma], the director of the award-winning documentary ‘Sunday Beauty Queen,’ on a documentary on my Mamita, the one and only Pilita Corrales,” Janine said via her Instagram page on Tuesday, May 14.


“I’ve always felt a deep responsibility to help preserve Mamita’s amazing legacy and I hope this project becomes another way for younger generations to learn about her story—not just as a legendary performer, but as a woman who defied expectations and truly paved the way,” she continued.


Janine further announced that the project, although still in “very early stages of development,” is set to be introduced at Producer’s Network and Spotlight Asia by Villarma and co-producer Chuck Gutierrez at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

“Pilita is more than just a documentary about a singer,” Villarama said of the project in an interview with Vogue Philippines.

“It’s a story of resilience, reinvention, and the enduring power of Filipino music. Piliata’s story is an inspiration, not just for aspiring artists, but for anyone who has ever dared to dream big,” she added.

Aside from Janine and Chuck, Raymond Ang will also co-produce the film. Further details on the documentary have yet to be revealed as of this writing.
