“Maid In Turkey,” A New Film By Director Joel Lamangan

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The professional rivalry between veteran film maker Director Joel Lamangan and rising young Director Darryl Yap has gone to new heights — high above the terrains of Turkey.

It will be recalled that Lamangan had criticized Yap for his new film, “Maid in Malacañang” where the former questioned what he said was a revision of history by the latter.

Now, the rivalry is on the big screen, with Yap’s film opening on August 3 and Lamangan’s new documentary, ”Maid in Turkey.”

Yap’s film revolves around the last 72 hours of the Marcos family before they were whisked away to Hawaii, seen from the perspective of the presidential palace’s household staff.

Lamangan’s documentary follows the adventures of Leni Robredo, particularly her experiences in Turkey — hot air balloon and all, and her incognito service as a maid, er, matron of honor for the wedding of a Turkish couple.

The race is on for the box office!
