They say good things come in threes, and that’s why Netflix Philippines is bringing us the upcoming film “Finding Agnes” on Nov. 30—following the release of “Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” and “Alter Me.” Starring Sue Ramirez and Jelson Bay, the film explores the themes of connecting with people, understanding others’ motivations and finding yourself in the process.
According to Netflix, the story follows a successful entrepreneur (Bay) as he travels to Morocco, pieces together his estranged mother’s life and meets his adoptive sister (Ramirez). “Finding Agnes” was filmed in Marrakesh, the fourth largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco.
“Ang vision ko dito ay yung makita natin kung gaano ka-importante ang relationship–hindi lamang sa pamilya pati sa mga taong nakapaligid sa atin, na minsan nalilimutan natin na maraming bagay ang bumubuo sa pagkatao natin, na walang masama na tayo ay kumonekta sa mga ito at wag piliin na maging mag-isa. Bilang Filipino, ganito ang kinalakihan kong kultura pero minsan naliligaw. Makikita ng mga kapwa ko Pinoy ang kahalagahan nito,” director Ancheta said.
And while we can’t do our own soul searching, maybe watching “Finding Agnes” will help us reflect on the relationships we do or don’t keep. It’s also a great way to see Morocco from the comfort of our own homes, right?
