In its effort to further encourage local auteurs and help improve the Filipino film industry, VIVA Films has come up with a line-up of films that veers away from the mainstream formula. Among this line-up are Marlon Rivera's Ang Huling Henya and the adaptation of Bob Ong's bestselling novels ABNKKBSNPLAko and Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin.
ABNKKBSNPLAko is due to start shooting this September with Mark Meilly as director. Marlon Rivera's Ang Huling Henya, on the other hand, is set to be released nationwide on September 21, 2013.
Synopsis of Ang Huling Henya:
Miri is trapped in her past and this time her whole past comes crashing back into her life: old dead secrets, her dead parents, and even the walking dead.
Miri’s return to Manila only brings her back to more trouble – the personal kind. Even as a young girl, Miri believed she is responsible for her parents death and the guilt kept her from building healthy relationships with those around her specially with her younger brother Mark.
Miri Alvarez, is one of the best agents of an international group organized to protect scientists and inventors from a tech-grabbing group called The Agency. But Miri is hot headed and refuses to follow orders. In one rescue operation, Miri’s refusal to follow protocol gets her long-time partner killed. Miri is suspended and sent back to Manila.
