Feature Film: "Lola M" Drama Dir: Vee Umpad Miguel Lorenza Peralta 72 mins Philippines

Synopsis:

An elderly God-fearing and family-oriented grandmother, despite her happy life now, still chooses to disappear from the present to look back at memories of her difficult past of being a simple barrio girl. A young girl, who faced many challenges and made many sacrifices throughout her life, paved her own path to building a better life for herself, and to becoming the strong woman that she is today. This film was created as a charity project to raise funds for the building of classrooms in Area 1, Sagun-Sungan, Marawi City, a place devastated by the Battle of Marawi that began in 2017.

About the Director, writer and producer Ms. Vee Umpad was inspired to create this film upon going to The Holy Land for a pilgrimage, wherein she first met an elderly Filipino woman who was a part of that same pilgrimage. There, the woman shared funny, interesting and inspiring stories from her long blessed life to Ms Vee. That elderly woman was Lola Maria Salvacion Dolina-Go,"Lola M."
