NAKA-POST sa Facebook account ni Direk Sheron Dayoc na nag-resign na siya bilang direktor ng Children of the Lake, ang Spring Films film tungkol sa Marawi City, at pinagbibidahan nina Robin Padilla at Piolo Pascual.
“I would just like to share to everyone that I have officially RESIGNED from the Marawi film project ‘Children of the Lake’ produced by Spring Films,” saad sa post ng direktor.
“My professional career started and rooted in telling the narrative of the marginalized Muslim Mindanao and this project is no longer reflective of my beliefs as a Mindanao storyteller. The producers and I have totally different perspectives on how the story of Marawi should be told.
“Like everyone else in the production team, the sacrifices made for this project is no joke—declining several TVC jobs and pushing other film projects to give priority to this film.
“This isn’t a love story, horror or comedy film that I woud openly compromise. This is such a sensitive subject matter and the story must be treated with prudence in respect to all the lives lost during the war in Marawi.
“I fought for what I believe is right on how to tell this story. I could be wrong, but I could also be right, but certainly I need to make a position and this is my stand.
“I wish Spring Films the best and I hope that they will make a Marawi film that is truthful and beneficial to the Marawi people, specially the victims of war.”
Wala pang sagot ang mga producer ng Spring Films at ang dalawang bida ng pelikula na sina Robin at Piolo sa pagre-resign ni Direk Sheron sa pelikula.
