Alden Richards sa Alaala: A Martial Law Special

Gusto mo bang mapanood ang isang Alden Richards kung paano niya hamunin ang kanyang acting prowess sa isang malalim na istorya? Ang tinaguring Pambansang Bae sa GMA News and  Public Affairs’ Alaala: A Martial Law Special. Mapapanood din ito sa North America (September 23) and Asia Pacific, Middle East, North Africa, and Europe) sa GMA Pinoy TV.

Commend kay Alden Richards

Lalo na sa supporter ni Alden, better to check out how he tries to evolve as an actor in doing off-beat meaty project like Alaala: A Martial Law Special.  It’s true that a love team makes a young star become popular and bankable. But in my opinion, in terms of artistry you need also to do variety of roles and works to widen your scope. It’s proven din naman sa ibang actors na nagtagal sa industry even after the peak of their love teams. 

In fairness to Alden even before and now with AlDub’s phenomenon, he's open to do unconventional projects. In 2014, he did Carmela opposite Marian Rivera and another GMA News and Public Affairs’ docu-drama Ilustrado which is about Jose Rizal

“Physically, psychologically, emotionally, mentally—mahirap ‘yung role. I’ve never been tortured in any of my roles when I was doing projects with soaps and movies,” pahayag ni Alden na kilala rin bilang half ng AlDub love team sa kanyang role short docu-film.

Doing solo projects doesn’t mean preparing to break free ha. We all know that his team up with Maine Mendoza gives exciting new level for his showbiz career. They’re effective performers and hosts- they both spread good vibes together na napanood din sa big screen My Bebe Love aside sa Eat Bulaga at Destined To Love You

Special short docu-film of GMA News and Public Affairs

Sa Alaala: A Martial Law Special ay gagampanan ni Alden ang isang student –activist noong panahon ng Martial Law na si Bonifacio Ilagan. Sa hindi pa nakakakilala ay totoong tao ay na isa ngayong award-winning screenwriter. Itinaon sa ika-45 anibersaryo  ng martial law declaration ang  special film drama-documentary ng kanyang buhay na siya rin mismo ang sumulat.


Samantala, kasama rin niya sa palabas si Rocco Nacino  na ang karakter na ipo-portray ay ang editor-journalist na si Pete Lacaba. Si Pete at Boni ay magkasama at parehong may istorya sa umano’y masalimuot na napagdaanan nila noong panahon na iyon.  Bahagi rin ng cast sa docu-film na ito sina Bianca Umali at Gina Alajar.


Laman din ng short film na ito ang panayam sa iba pang personalidad na magbabahagi pa ng kanilang opinyon at karanasan noong Martial Law. Kasama na rito si JC Mijares-Gurango na nagsabi ng nalalaman ng kanyang lola Primitivo Mijares lalo na sa umano’y “conjugal dictatorship.” Ang salaysay ni Kim Rodrigo (anak ni Sen. Soc Rodrigo) sa laban ng oposisyon kontra sa diktatorya.

At this time that watching a film is sort of expensive and it’s very rare to see docu-films (like Sunday Beauty Queen), better to watch this special. It’s cool for students, not only for historical value, but also for film study.  The attack for true-to-life accounts and for very sensitive historical issues like this is different.  It’s also good thing also that GMA News and Public Affairs does docu-dramas, it’s both informative and entertaining for diverse types of audience.

Ang Alaala: A Martial Law Special ay unang ipinalabas sa noong September 17 sa GMA News channel 11.


Mabuhay!
