REEL DEAL: Himala (Restored Version)

Even after all of these years, timeless classics never cease to amaze me with their aesthetic permanence and style, and one of these cinema gems HIMALA was restored with the aide of technology to give it a cleaner view compared when it was grainy and noisy back then. The restortion was done by ABS-CBN and Central Digital Lab. The Restored Film was first premiered in 69th Venice Film Festival. In the Philippines, it was released on December 5, 2012
