ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos-Concio does not feel bad that her comeback movie, “Ang Babaeng Humayo,” was not chosen by the Film Academy of the Philippines (FAP) to be the country’s official entry in the upcoming Academy Awards.

This despite the movie’s recent victory at the Venice Film Festival where it bagged the Golden Lion top prize.

The FAP confirmed to ABS-CBN News last week that the country's official entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category of the Oscars will be Brillante Mendoza's "Ma' Rosa."

"It would have been great if our film was chosen, pero iba-iba ang panlasa ng tao (but people have different tastes). You accept that," she said.

"You just go with the flow and move on. We should all just be happy for 'Ma 'Rosa,'" she added.

Nonetheless, Cinema One Originals head Ronald Arguelles said the producers of "Ang Babaeng Humayo" are doing their best for the film to have a regular run in the United States so Santos could be eligible for the individual acting category.

"For the US screenings, yes we are working on it," Arguelles said.

When asked how she feels about comments that she has a chance of winning an Oscar, Santos said: "Masaya pero (I'm excited about the idea but) you just go with the flow, no expectations. What will be, will be. You take things as they come. I just have a grateful heart."

Meanwhile, Santos shared her experience at the Venice Film Festival following the movie's impressive feat as the first Filipino film to win the Golden Lion award.

"The win of the movie is a celebration of Philippine cinema. I'm so very happy and proud of (director) Lav Diaz. He deserves this after nine years of working so hard and not giving up," she said.

"There are no biases. They just saw the film for its merits. They saw our performances for our own merits," she added. "Walang judgment, wala ring expectations. Nakakatuwa naman that it was very much appreciated (No judgment, no expectations. I'm happy that the movie was very much appreciated)," she said.

Aside from Santos, the movie also features John Lloyd Cruz, Michael de Mesa, Shamaine and Nonie Buencamino, Mae Paner and Cacai Bautista, among others.

"Ang Babaeng Humayo" will have its regular run in the Philippines starting September 28, with a premiere night on September 27 at the UP Town Center.

  7. Wala naman masama sa sinabi niya. Honest siya pero respectful pa rin. Siguro kung may bitterness man, yun ang nagsabi: nalasahan niya ang sariling bitterness.
