MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Darryl Yap’s much-awaited new film about Ninoy Aquino, “Martyr or Murderer,” almost blew up in the face of Viva Films. Yap threatened to quit after the production outfit insisted that a specific scene be deleted from the final cut.
This is no Marites. Yap himself posted it on his social media account.
Adobo Chronicles’ star correspondent Jake D. caught up with the controversial director while he was dining at Mang Inasal.
It turns out that the scene Viva Films wanted to cut was that of Ferdinand E. Marcos singing “Pamulinawen” to a tickled Imelda Marcos.
Yap told AC that he will not agree to censoring history and reality in any of his films. (Many will recall that in his last film, “Maid in Malacañang, Imelda’s character was seen and heard singing “Dahil Sa Iyo.”)
Will moviegoers see MoM on March 1? Cut or Uncut?
