CCP Cine Icons to screen Romero’s “Aguila”

QUEZON CITY (PIA) - The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Cine Icons will screen  “Aguila”  a  Filipino Classic film to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of  its director, the late national artist Eddie Romero on April 3,  1 pm, at the GSIS Theater in Pasay City.

The screening is free and open to public and a talk back session will be held afterwards.

Launched in 2023, CCP Cine Icons is a special program of the CCP Film, Broadcast, and New Media Division-Production and Exhibition Department (FBNMD-PED) which aims to honor and popularize the life and works of National Artists and Gawad CCP Para sa Sining awardees.

Last March 15, CCP Cine Icons had its first anniversary with the screening of “Flor Contemplacion” starring Nora Aunor, another national artist at the same venue, GSIS Theater.

Starring Fernando Poe Jr, (FPJ), “Aguila” is a 1980 Philippine period drama film about Daniel Aguila whose life coincided with the country’s historic and tumultuous events.

“Aguila” won six awards at the 1981 FAMAS Awards, including Best Picture and Best Screenplay and had nine nominations at the 1981 Gawad Urian Awards.

Aside from directing, Romero was also a film producer and screenwriter who was declared a National Artist in 2003.

His works included “Ganito Kami Noon…Paano Kayo Ngayon?,” “Kamakalawa,” “Banta ng Kahapon,” “Lost Battalion,” “The Raiders of Leyte Gulf,” and “The Walls of Hell.”. (LP)
