If there’s a catalogue from any Filipino act mythical and multifaceted enough it can propel an entire musical—narrative, compositional adventurism, emotional twists, and all—it has to be the APO Hiking Society’s. Jim Paredes, Boboy Garovillo, and Danny Javier’s legendary body of work, after all, has been part of the Filipino musical diet for decades now. This proposition, thankfully, is no longer hypothetical. The APO-themed musical-by-way-of film I Do Bidoo Bidoo: Heto nAPO Sila will start screening August 29 via Unitel Productions. It will feature some of the trio’s best-known tunes, including “Pumapatak Na Naman ang Ulan,” “Awit ng Barkada,” “Panalangin,” “Ewan,” and “Kabilugan ng Buwan,” among others. Unitel founder and industry visionary Tony Gloria says, “It’s been many years since I dreamed up this movie, and it took years of development […],” then goes on to express his delight over the group’s approval and support. “That was instrumental,” the producer shares. The same film outfit also brought audiences such gems as Crying Ladies and La Visa Loca, and, for this project, has enlisted industry stalwarts like Gary Valenciano, Zsa Zsa Padilla, and Ogie Alcasid, along with young popster Sam Concepcion, newcomer Tippy Dos Santos, and, on the comedic front, Eugene Domingo, to bring life to the project. “The refreshing and impressive casting […] has got all of us excited, and we are sure that the public will be as excited as we are,” Gloria adds. The film was written and directed by Chris Martinez, the award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and director whose vision was previously showcased in Babae sa Septic Tank, Caregiver, and the remake of camp hit Temptation Island.
