“Hindi naman namin ipinakitang sinaksak yung bibe o dumanak ng dugo,” he says. “Daya lang ang lahat. Bakit naman ako mananakit ng hayup, e alam kong bawal? Marami kaming ginamit na ibang hayup sa movie like aso, pusa, kalabaw, but they were all handled with care. No animal was harmed in the filming of our movie. Our producer, Regis Films, has a farm at dun galing ang lahat ng animals that we used in our movie.”
“Tatlong Bibe” is inspired by the hit kiddie song that went viral last year. “Ginawa ito with the intention na isali sa Metro filmfest, pero hindi kami pinalad, so mas gusto talaga sigurong ipalabas kami nang walang kasabay o kalaban sa playdate namin on March 1. People think comedy ito dahil dun sa kantang may Quack Quack Quack, o kaya fantasy kasi tatlong bata ang bida. But no, it’s a serious inspirational drama about love, faith and forgiveness.”
The story revolves on the boy Noah, played by Marco Masa, whose mom, Angel Aquino, abandoned him and left him under the care of an abusive relative, Rita Avila. Despite his sad life, Noah continues to be an inspiration in the lives of the people in their community, along with his friends Lyca Gairanod and Raikko Mateo.
“Dahil sa kanya, mababago ang buhay ng mga tao sa lugar nila,” adds Joven. “Mag-asawa rito sina Eddie Garcia at Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao. Lasenggo si Eddie at si Mommy D, walang ginawa kundi mag-ballroom dancing. Noah will change them for the better, pati na rin ang mag-asawang Anita Linda at Lou Veloso. Kasama rin sa cast sina Victor Neri and Nikki Valdez as the parents of Lyca, Edgar Allan Guzman and Diane Medina as the parents of Raikko, Perla Bautista as a kind neighbor at anak niya ang doktor na si Luis Alandy, plus Ernie Garcia as another director. May teen love din dito, sina JK Labajo and Sharlene San Pedro. ‘Tatlong Bibe’ will have its premiere night on February 13 at SM Megamall Cinema 9 and opens in theaters nationwide on March 1.”
