HUBO Productions commits to support Solito Arts’ Baybayin

HUBO Productions has entered an agreement to support the production of Solito Arts’ Baybayin, an official selection of the upcoming Cinema One Originals slated to be held on November 2012.

Baybayin, by Auraeus Solito, is the second installment of a trilogy that engages the indigenous Palawan culture and philosophy, the first one being Busong. Baybayin is the tale of two half sisters both in love with a man who is unable to hear or talk to them, proving that love can communicate even in silence. It is inspired by Palawan’s local legends and hopes to dramatize the Palawan script as well. The film stars the de Rossi sisters, Assunta and Alessandra.

HUBO Board Member Ida Ceniza-Tiongson was instrumental in this new collaboration.  Solito, on signing up HUBO’s support for his latest film project remarked,  “The meeting with Ida was serendipitous in a way.  I felt that HUBO is a group of people that respects artistic integrity of filmmakers.”  Further he acknowledges that HUBO has produced progressive and meaningful films before.
