ABOUT THE FILM:
“ANG MGA KIDNAPER NI RONNIE LAZARO” is about a group of down and out-of-luck men who decided to make a film starring Ronnie Lazaro, the most sought-after indie actor in the Philippines. Things get complicated when Lazaro decides to beg-off from acting on their supposed “indie film” and the guys were forced to abduct the actor.

BEBOT, a former Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) has been down and out of luck after the Middle East crisis, that left him jobless and his family leaving him in the process. He hatches a plan with his loser friends from Quiapo — PIPOY, a call center agent; BOY GEORGE, a camera repairman; ABDUL, a Muslim pirated DVD seller; HESUS, a prophet of doom; and HECTOR, a former stuntman who has grown fat because of the demise of action films — to make an independent film of their own starring what to them is the most famous Filipino indie film actor nowadays especially with the sudden boom of indie films — RONNIE LAZARO. However, things become complicated when RONNIE LAZARO decides to beg off from acting on their supposed indie film. They suddenly found themselves accidentally kidnapping RONNIE and holing him up at BEBOT’s old dilapidated place in Quiapo. What will happen now that they have the most famous indie actor in the Philippines? Will they be able to finish their film on time? Or will the kidnapping test their bond of friendship?

The film won the Grand Festival Prize at the first staging of the Film Development Council of the Philippines’ Sineng Pambansa National Film Competition held in Davao City from June 29 to July 3. Sigfreid Barros-Sanchez’s ensemble cast made up of Ronnie Lazaro, Nonie Buencamino, Epy Quizon, Dwight Gaston, Soliman Cruz, Raul Morit, Hector Macaso and Mon Lee also took home the Best Actor Award.
