Saka Saka, An MMFF Entry For New Wave Feature Film


The dawn of the action genre is beaming up as two of today's hottest young actor, Ejay Falcon and Joseph Marco collaborates in an action packed movie entitled "Saka Saka".  It is Cinebro's offering for movie goers this holiday season and this is their entry for the Metro Manila Film Festival's New Wave Full Feature Film category.  Great for the Dads and yuppies who loves action movies.




"Saka Saka" is about the story of two brothers, Alex Abueg played by Ejay Falcon and Abner Abueg played by Joseph Marco, who lives the life of being a political assassin or commonly called in their area as Saka Saka.  The intriguing and violent acts of politics happening in some provinces were exposed in this movie.  According to Director Toto Natividad, "this are actually happening."  These people live their lives as political assassin as their way of gratitude to the politicians who provided them means of livelihood, farming in particular and in Filipino it is called "sakahan" in which the Saka Saka came from.  This movie explores and shows the age-old conflict between lawful righteousness and violent revenge.  Set against the contrasting backdrops of rustic, provincial life and the fast-paced, modern culture of the metro.


Saka Saka is mainly a family movie that features the strong bond of protecting and defending their families from oppression and corruption.

Ejay Falcon, who is one of the most bankable young action stars in the industry today after his recent top-rating afternoon series on ABS-CBN Gold Dugong Buhay, says that he has such big shoes to fill as he is chosen to be one of the lead actors in the opening salvo of Cinebro.  According to him, "It's such an honor for me to be part of Saka Saka.  A lot of great action stars came before me and it is both a challenge and an inspiration to keep their legacies alive in the silver screen."


While Joseph Marco who is a model turned actor is thrilled to be one of the leads in his very first full-length feature film.  He said, "It's such a wonderful blessing to be given the opportunity to work with Dire Toto and Ejay.  This is the first time for me to play one of the leads in a full-length movie and I thank ABS-CBN as well as the entire staff and crew and my co=actors fro the trust and support that they continue to give me.  I learned a lot and I grew as an actor in making this film."

Saka Saka is also written by Toto Natividad in collaboration with Willy Laconsay and Manuel R. Buising.  Other stars in this film are Baron Geisler, Toby Alejar, Perla Bautista, Kathleen Hermosa, and it introduces Akiko Solon and Martin Imperial. 


Saka Saka will be shown in SM Megamall and Glorietta from December 18 to 24.
