IN NOMINE MATRIS (Sa Ngalan ng Ina), a film by HUBO Productions, premiered last December at the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). Its dramatic premise and visually stimulating Filipiniana-Flamenco dance sequences choreographed by world renowned Flamenco master, Clara Ramona is a must see. The movie bagged in the Festival’s NEW WAVE category the Best Actress award for Liza Diño and the Most Gender Sensitive Award.  World jazz musician Bob Aves created the beautiful music score, a first in Philippine cinema wherein “Kundiman” and Flamenco rhythms were fused together.

Supported by the Embassy of Spain in the Philippines, Instituto Cervantes/SPCC, and Trinity Hearts Media, IN NOMINE MATRIS is highly recommended by NCCA for its cultural elements and celebration of the arts. 
Liza Diño
Portrayed by Liza Diño also an ANI NG DANGAL awardee last 2012 for her Best Actress recognition at international festivals, Mara a young dance protégé who seeks to land the principal part of a dance company that is about to embark on a tour. On her quest to land the coveted break, a series of events turned her sense of meaning upside down. She is then faced with a life changing decision. She turns to her mentor Mercedes (Clara Ramona) and her mother Ava (Tami Monsod) as she searches for answers in the beautifully loud and endlessly moving world she lives in. Within this premise, director Fredo fuses the sensitivities of the Spanish culture into the Philippine modern setting through a highly tense mix of drama, dance, singing, and poetry.

Details of the movie can be seen here.
