SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM BRILLANTE MENDOZA:
"Thy Womb" is a film that aptly lives up to its title. It gave birth to a lot of opportunities to all those who are involved in the film. It highlighted Tawi-Tawi as a peaceful and beautiful place for tourism. Likewise, it gave a different perspective on the life and culture of our Muslim brothers and sisters in the southern part of the country.
The film also allowed a renewed appreciation for the one and only superstar, Ms. Nora Aunor, whose impeccable talent yielded both international and local acting awards.
I am truly amazed and awed by the reception accorded to the film in 47 Film festivals here and abroad. It is my humble opinion that the message of “Thy Womb” embraces all cultures and penetrates every person’s heart.
It is my wish that “Thy Womb” would continue to give birth to greater prospects that will make our country and people prouder and honored.
~ Brillante Mendoza, Thy Womb director and producer
