“Ang Platinong Buhok” (The Platinum Hair), a documentary film about the late theater, TV and film actress Amable |Ama” Quiambao Viray, holds special screenings at the Dream Theater of the CCP, this Cinemalaya 2013 Film Festival.
The twenty-minute film documentary highlights the account of Ms. Quiambao’s career as an actress and personal life as friend, teacher and mother which are revealed through interviews conducted by Abby Angeles.

Perry Escaño, documentary director says, “My first professional interaction with Tita Ama was when we did Ang Tahanan ni Bernarda Alba, a play we did for Gantimpala Theater. She was my mother. And as Bernarda, nakaka-star struck siya.

The experience to work with her gave me enough opportunities to appreciate her talents as an actress and realize how great she is as a person.

After a hurly-burly kindav whirly situation that JM DE GUZMAN got himself into, he is said to be released soon [like next month] from the rehabilitation facility he was cooped after having had a bad bout with hallucinatory substances. This was disclosed by his father in a casual talk and volunteered that his son is recovering fast and at the moment is cohesive and lucid. A great news but with strong implications that JM still has to tackle with his own devils in order for him to beautifully bounce back into entertainment circuit. He lost opportunities and hopefully regain better breaks once he is good for the going! Fresh up, JM!

It could not happen to a better actor [the least to a chance] to star in two films in a festival. Well, sometimes it does and that sometime is this year’s CINEMALAYA Independent Film Festival where PAULO AVELINO is expected to generate excitement and anticipation as he topbills in Tarrog’s ‘SANA DATI’ and Yapan’s ‘DEBOSYON’. Whispering waves echoing through the industry has it that he stands another great chance of winning an award for either… or both! Undoubtedly, Avelino’s depth and expository thespian range is a hard nut to crack while lavishing on the boyish masculine charm it comes from. This early? Yes, this early… CONGRATULATIONS PAULO! Luv Yah! Luv Yah? Yes, close kami noh???
Promising hunk actor JM DE GUZMAN is OUT of the ‘SAN PEDRO CALUNGSOD: BATANG MARTIR’ project. In a formal effort, his father called Director Francis Villacorta informing the latter that his son is not in his right elements to essay the role of the Filipino saint. Earlier, JM signed the commitment letter submitted to the MMFF committee. Mr. de Guzman cited ‘health’ as JM’s main reason of withdrawal and they would not wish to risk production problems during the shoot if ever. Dismayed, Villacorta insists that he had always rooted for the actor to play the role but then, production has to commence the soonest to cope with the December festival’s deadline and they have to find the right payer to the role. Recently, JM DE GUZMAN filled the gossip circles with talks that he is hip-deep into substance addiction and that he had very few lucid moments to speak of.
