“It’s silver but it feels like gold!” This is the buzz line you will hear from the AB Communication students who were present in EdukCircle’s International Conference for Communication Studies Documentary Film Making Competition 2017 awarding ceremonies at the AFP Theater last September 9, 2017.

This line originated from ABComm’s President, Earl Gicana, who, while holding the Silver Award, felt a sense of pride because their video documentary “Biyahe” was the most applauded by the audience among the three winners in the said competition, with San Sebastian Recoletos Malolos winning the Bronze Award for their film “Bahaghari” and Lyceum of the Philippines bagging the Gold Award for their film “Tugatog ng Tagumpay.”

ABComm 4’s El Exito Production is composed of Fourth Year ABComm students of SHC, namely: Leighza Mir Estella, Earl Gicana, Ma. Cecilia Capulong, Rencel Mae Seguit, Catherine Mae Entrata, Janica Marcilla, Edelle Queen Villanueva, Marian de Ramos, Sandy Villamarzo and Angelle Joy Ynson, with their production consultant and ABComm Program Head, Dr. Maria Zorayda A. Torres.

This year’s featured story for the 10-minute documentary film “Biyahe” revolved around the life of a 80-year old man named Ruperto “Tatay Berting” Arroyo who travels everyday from Unisan, Quezon to Lucena, City to beg in order to pay for his life plan and to provide for the needs of his 36-year old mentally retarded daughter named Vilma or “Oging.” Vilma was a rape victim and is now pregnant. They are currently residing near the sea in Unisan, Quezon.

This year’s Silver Award for the documentary film, “Biyahe” is the fifth award received by SHC’s ABComm since 2010, with the Gold Award for the film “Dilaw,” Bronze Award in 2011 for the film “Kahon. Four years after in 2015, SHC bagged the Bronze Award for “Liwanag sa Dilim,” and the Gold Award for “Kampay” in 2016.

Side by side the Silver Award is the Special Award for the video essay entry entitled “The Mark” of Charlotte Valdeavilla, ABComm 3, in the Cine Vicente organized by Adamson University, Manila. Ms. Valdeavilla was assisted by the BS Social Work students, Lisette Ann Sandoval, Jhunelle Baruelo, Cathleen Keith Rodelas and Bhaby Ruth Surio, in locating the subjects with her production consultants, Dr. Maria Zorayda A. Torres and Rolando D. Abrigo III.

The awarding ceremony was held last September 9, 2017 in Concordia College, Manila on the occasion of the Vincentian Charism Jamboree.
