Real Florido's Bakit Di Mo Sabihin: A Film About Deafness That Needs To Be Heard

Amidst the noise of today’s content congested digital and pandemic-stricken world, it is a daunting task  to tell a story that will stand out. Real Florido’s new opus entitled, BAKIT ‘DI MO SABIHIN (Tell Her), an  official entry to this year’s Cinemalaya Film Festival intends to cut through the clutter by telling a marriage  story that speaks loud even with the absence of spoken language, a film that will bring everyone to the  world of the deaf. 

“Bakit ‘Di Mo Sabihin” is a movie about a deaf couple, Miguel and Nat who are struggling to keep their  marriage. After a huge fight, Miguel leaves his wife alone in Manila and decides to live in Baler with their  kids. As he starts a new life, Miguel is reminded about the reasons why he married Nat by his family’s  relentless stories about how modern a woman Nat is, and how he failed in so many ways to recognize that  he fell in love with a younger deaf woman. One Christmas Eve, Miguel finally makes a move to tell Nat  everything she needed to know. Miguel and Nat are played by two of today’s most acclaimed actors, JC  De Vera and Janine Gutierrez respectively.

After four decades, Cory (Nova Villa) and Third (Freddie Webb) cross paths again that will change the entire course of their twilight years.  Married to Alejandro (Dante Rivero), Cory initially avoids rekindling the past but the inevitable happens and finally finds herself loving each moment when their first date is finally realized.   Revolving around Cory, a recently retired government employee, the seductive idea of rekindling her first love has posed a challenging proposition for Cory. 

Dante Rivero, on the other hand, plays Alejandro, a very touching portrayal of a man in his 60’s seeking to come to terms with his wife’s attempts to rekindle a romance with an old flame out of marriage’s monotony.   “ 1st Ko Si 3rd” won Best Actor Award for Dante Rivero’s performance in the film and was one of the box office top grossers in this year’s Cinemalaya Film Festival.

Written and directed by Real Florido and included in the New Breed Category of this year’s Cinemalaya Indpendent Film Festival (Year 10), “1st Ko si 3rd” introduces the audience to a 65-year old woman, Cory (Villa) married to Alejandro (Dante Rivero) who gets reunited with her 1st love, Third (Webb) and finally the supposed 1st date happens five decades after they got separated.

“1st Ko si 3rd” also bagged this year’s Cinemalaya Best Actor Award (Dante Rivero). Director Florido muses on the movie’s theme on love and life especially among Filipinos who face the twilight years of their lives, “When we hear about first love, the first things that we imagine are the fondest memories of a person's young love. We instantaneously recreate this image of how they look like back in the days. This time, I want to flip the lenses. I want to show the other side –the point of view of the one who is looking back at a distant memory and at the same time be able to narrate a story of love and life through the eyes of ageing people.  This film aims to do just that. Cory’s story is more than just about her 1st love. It is also about a person’s apprehensions and fears in the life that is waiting during retirement—a reflection of the life of most Filipino retirees.”
