It’s disconcerting that only months ago, I was mired in mud while shooting the film in a remote village in Cagayan Valley. I’d never imagined that this film would take me to a manicured resort frequented by the bourgeoisie … to receive an award in an A-list festival.

The Golden Leopard is really golden. But it’s just 0.001 of the missing Marcos gold. Filipino filmmakers have to win the gold prize every year for the next 100 years to retrieve the Marcos loot in Swiss banks

They call me a guy who can recall his past lives.I remember the light when I was young.Not one light, but many, in different colours.I thought they were some kind of airborne animals.They were transparent dots.I would chase them and follow them into the jungleI would follow the lights and look at them,let them transfer images into my mind. The adults thought I was crazy or was possessed by a ghostBut they didn’t bother…to take me to a hospital or to a shaman.
Later I remember when I was in the jungleand saw no lights.I would look directly at the sunand close my eyes.I saw the white orb in the darkness.Only that act could bring comfortbecause I always fearthat one daywhen I open my eyesI will see nothing.

They call me a guy who can recall his past lives.
I remember the light when I was young.
Not one light, but many, in different colours.
I thought they were some kind of airborne animals.
They were transparent dots.
I would chase them and follow them into the jungle
I would follow the lights and look at them,
let them transfer images into my mind. 
The adults thought I was crazy or was possessed by a ghost
But they didn’t bother…
to take me to a hospital or to a shaman.

Later I remember when I was in the jungle
and saw no lights.
I would look directly at the sun
and close my eyes.
I saw the white orb in the darkness.
Only that act could bring comfort
because I always fear
that one day
when I open my eyes
I will see nothing.

My main influence outside of cinema? I would have to say parents. I am really attached to my family. They are both doctors who moved from Bangkok to live in a small town when there was nothing. In the first scene of Blissfully Yours you see a doctor clinic - that is my parents’ workspace for the last 25 years. They were in that green curtain room all their working life. I wish one day I can make an entire film just happening in that room as a tribute to them. They took me to my first cinema experience in a local theatre. They allowed me to do what I wanted. My mother used to have an orchid garden that she loved. Both of them enjoy traveling and always tag the kids along. They have led a super simple life that I wish I could be that simple. Simplicity is the key.
