Prince of Indie Coco Martin is back where he started as an actor with an indie film entitled Santa Niña. The movie is one of the competing films in the 2012 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival happening this July 20-29.
Santa Niña is about a two-year old child who was a victim of the lahar in Bacolor, Pampanga way back in 1995. Ten years later, the child's remains were excavated and people were surprised that the body was still intact and had not gone decomposition. The people believed that the child's body was miraculous and since then, the child's father (Coco Martin) worked for the child's sainthood.
Coco Martin will be joined by award-winning and veteran actors in Santa Niña including Alessandra De Rossi , Angel Aquino, Irma Adlawan, Leo Martinez, Nanding Josef, Lui Manansala and Ms. Anita Linda.
Santa Niña is directed by Emmanuel 'Manny' Palo.
Meanwhile, Coco Martin's movie with Angeline Quinto was a success, grossing P29.7 million in just 5 days. He is currently busy with his top-rated series, Walang Hanggan which is reported to be returning with a 'Book 2.'
