(MOVIE) “MAMU AND A MOTHER TOO” To Be Screened In Selected Cinemas This May


One of 2018’s Cinema One Originals featured films, “Mamu And A Mother Too,” will hold special screenings this May to present an amusing and heartwarming motherhood story in celebration of Mother’s Day.

On Sunday (May 12), the film will have a special Mother’s Day screening at Cinema Centenario at 5:30pm.  It will also be shown at the UPFI Film Center – Cine Adarna gala screening on May 22 (Wednesday) at 5pm and 7pm. On May 24 (Friday), the film will have regular screenings at micro-cinemas in Cinema ’76.



Hailed as C1 Originals’ Audience Choice and Young Critics Circle 2019’s Best First Feature, “Mamu And A Mother Too” is directed by Rod Singh and features a middle-aged transgender who finds herself instantly becoming a surrogate mom to her transgender niece.

“Mamu And A Mother Too” made headlines last year when its lead star, Iyah Mina, won Best Actress in C1 Originals, the first transgender woman recognized for best acting in Philippine cinema. Meanwhile, another cast member and Iya’s long-term boyfriend in the film, Arron Villaflor, was hailed as Best Supporting Actor.

According to Leo Balante’s review on adobomagazine.com, the film has the right combination of realistic comedy and drama. He said, “This effortless, symbiotic relationship made it easy for the audience to grow as the characters grew with the right blend of real-life drama and comedy. . . Overall, ‘Mamu; and a Mother Too’ is a ride you will enjoy as you will not forget for a long while.”

Meanwhile, Ryan Piolo Veluz hailed the film’s take on motherhood in abttheflame.net, the official student publication of UST Faculty of Arts and Letters. “Ultimately, the film teaches viewers that the core of being a mother is not determined by gender and blood relation; rather, motherhood is a choice fueled by unselfish motives and unpretentious affection,” he wrote.

The film was recently rated R-13 by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).
