Kathryn-Alden Movie to be Screened in Japan

TOKYO – Filipinos in Japan will have the chance to watch the box-office hit film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” starring ABS-CBN actress Kathryn Bernardo and GMA actor Alden Richards under Star Cinema.

The Japan screening will happen on Sept. 1 at Arakawa Public Hall (Sun Pearl, Arakawa) from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Written by Carmi Raymundo and under the direction of multi-awarded and blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina, the movie tells the story of Joy (Kathryn) and Ethan (Alden), two overseas Filipinos in Hong Kong with different goals in life. Joy is a domestic helper who is determined to do everything to have a better life, compared to the life she had as a child. While Ethan is a bartender who is building a permanent life in Hong Kong but has always been afraid of commitments.

In the process of getting to know each other, Joy and Ethan also discover new things about themselves, which could possibly affect the plans they have with their respective lives.

“I appreciate the OFW more after seeing how hard their life is,” Kathryn said about portraying the life of an overseas Filipino. “In Hong Kong, they live a fast-phased life because they need to save. This movie opened me to different things and experiences that I can say made me whole. I salute the OFWs.”

On the other hand, Alden shared a bit what the audiences will expect in watching the film. “With this movie, the audience will see the struggles and the good side of being an OFW. Also, they will see how they evolved from the usual OFW whose only concern is the welfare of their family into someone who also thinks of their self,” he said.

Also part of the film are Maymay Entrata, Jameson Blake, Joross Gamboa, Kakai Bautista, Lovely Abella and Jeffrey Tam.
