‘Signal Rock’


WHAT do you do if everyone depends on you?

This is the character of Intoy in “Signal Rock,” one of the entries in Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) 2018. In the lead role is award-winning actor, Christian Bables.

The trailer shows Intoy taking care of his family after her sister marries a foreigner and works outside the country.

“Anak, tawagan mo ulit ate mo ha? Pakiusapan mo. Baka sakali,” says Intoy’s mother, portrayed by Daria Ramirez.

Intoy has to go to the rock formations in the island to get a good signal.

“Hello, Ate. Pina-follow-up lang sana ni Nanay ‘yung padala,” he tells his sister.

Intoy does not say no. He also finds a way to help and grants favor from other people.

“May pakiusap sana ‘yung mayor. Hindi daw po magamit ang speaker sa coliseum. Baka pwede hiramin sa inyo,” Intoy says in one of the scenes.

Intoy has a girlfriend (played by Elora Españo). who tells him she wants to work as a cashier in a bar in Olongapo.

“Paraan lang ‘yun para makatisud ka ng foreigner. Nasanay na tayo na ang mga babae dito pinalaki para umalis,” he says.

Another part of the trailer shows Intoy’s sister crying on the phone.

“Ate, anong nangyari?” he asks.

“Sinaktan ako ni Ysman. Ano ba ang gagawin ko?” her sister replies.

“Sabihin mo anong dapat kong gawin, Ate. Gagawin ko,” a determined Intoy answers.

”Signal Rock” is directed by Chito S. Rono and produced by CSR Productions and Regal Films.

Also in the film are Nanding Josef, Mon Confiado, Keana Reeves, Francis Magundayao, Archie Adamos, and Sue Prado.

Bables rose to fame when he played Barbs in the Metro Manila Film Festival 2016 movie, “Die Beautiful” for which he won the Best Supporting Actor award.

He currently plays Barry in ABS-CBN’s newest primetime serie, “Halik” headlined by Jericho Rosales, Yen Santos, Yam Concepcion, and Sam Milby.

PPP will run from August 15 to 21.
