Rocco is the Final Choice

This Christmas, let us learn more about the life and martyrdom of the newest Filipino saint, the Blessed Pedro Calungsod, in a movie written and directed by Francis O. Villacorta.

Originally intended for JM De Guzman, Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir will now be topbilled by the talented Kapuso actor, Rocco Nacino. Among other choices to replace JM were Paulo Avelino, Alden Richards and Coco Martin, but Rocco topped the list because he looks like the young saint and has already played Calungsod in a GMA News TV historical docu-drama.


This is not going to be the typical MMFF film because this will give the audience a glance at what and how far Christianity has gone since 1668 during the mission of San Pedro Calungsod. He also emphasized that the audience will appreciate the adventure, fears and tensions in the film, and that it will have an affirmative effect on the youth citing that life doesn’t have to be long to be able to make something of it.

A film not being made for money, the producers wish that every Filipino should watch this and that the film will have an effect in the lives of the audience in a positive Christian way.

Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir will be shown in cinemas nationwide on December 25, 2013, as part of the 34th Metro Manila Film Festival.
