“Nelia,” a film produced by A and Q Productions Films, Inc., has made it as one of the official films in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
Beauty queen Winwyn Marquez leads the all-star cast of the suspense-thriller movie. The star said she is grateful for the opportunity.
“Mixed emotions talaga. Kabado, tuwa, takot etc pero sobrang grateful na napili ang Nelia dahil alam ko buong cast and production binigay lahat nung ginagawa ang film,” Marquez shared as she recalled her reaction as the list of official entries was announced.
“I was watching from FB Live nung announcement and kinakabahan ako kasi syempre mga unang movies na binanggit napakalaking mga artista at pinaghandaan na mga pelikula din,” she added. “Nung biglang binanggit yung synopsis naparecord ako bigla kasi di ako makapaniwala.”
Marquez plays the title role as Nelia in this film directed by Lester Dimaranan with screenplay written by one of its producers Melanie Honey Quiño. The film tackles the story of a nurse whose womanly instincts and gut feel are aroused because of the mysterious cases happening in the hospital where she works.
