dIYOS-DIYOSAn is a socio-political/spiritual treatise that highlights the roots of the country’s current political struggles and economic hardships—the focus on money and power by its leaders.
The film seeks to open the eyes of Filipino millennials to the realities of what a true leader should be, and is expected to be a media catalyst for the large percentage of undecided voters.
Its timing is perfect as it opens shortly before the Philippine national elections.
It is hoped that freedom-loving Filipinos draw inspiration from the film’s lessons and use this as a guiding principle in eventually choosing the rightful and deserving leaders who could change the country’s course for the better.
1986- She loved her country but hated God. That is why Estrell, played by Princess Punzalan, made sure that each of her 4th year high school students would do the same.
“Serve the people! But believe only in yourself,” she stressed.
Her brilliant but broken favorite student, Bernard, played by John Prats, did just as she instructed. He believed in himself, albeit only in himself. He did not believe in God.
But somewhere along the way, Estrell met the Lord and became a believer. Bernard, on the other hand grew up and started to believe more and more in himself, that he could somehow be his own god.
It is 2014 – Estrell is now a missionary preaching God’s word. Bernard, on the other hand, has emerged to become an evil and corrupt senator who is one of the strongest candidates for President in 2016. They meet again.
This is a story about the evil in Philippine politics and how the Power of God’s unending love and mercy can cause real change.
Directed by Christian film director Cesar Buendia, the movie stars top-caliber actor John Prats and veteran actress Princess Punzalan, with a stellar supporting cast that includes Kiko Estrada, Cheska Diaz, Lorenzo Mara, Vaness del Moral, Glaiza de Castro, Tirso Cruz III and many others.
