"To love is to have faith":  DEBOSYON

Written and directed by Alvin B. Yapan
Starring Paulo Avelio and Mara Lopez

 Gala Night:  July 29 (Monday) 6:15 PM CCP Main Theater

"DEBOSYON by Alvin Yapan in the New Breed category is about Mando (Paulo
Avelino), a Bikolano devotee of Ina, Virgin of Peñafrancia, Patroness of
Bikolandia. Mando injures himself in the middle of the forest at the foot
of the Mayon Volcano. He is nursed back to health by a mysterious woman,
Salome (Mara Lopez) living there. They eventually fall in love with each
other. But when Mando invites her to come with him to the plains, Salome
refuses, saying a curse prohibits her from leaving the forest. Salome holds
a secret that will devastate Mando’s love for her. Mando relies on his
devotion to the Virgin of Peñafrancia to lift the curse, making him realize
just how inextricably linked are the virtues of love and faith." -<
