Directed by RJ Aquino and Janice Perez, “Magbuwag Ta Kay” is the so-called myriad story of social media sensation and “hugot” king Rowell Ucat, popularly known as Medyo Maldito.
Produced by Heritage Productions and written by poet and singer-songwriter Therese Villarante and music producer Jude Gitamondoc, the film talks about relationships, family issues and friendships, with the rise and fall of Roy (Medyo Maldito) and Kay’s (Akiko) relationship.
Scenes are taken across different scenic locations in Cebu, “Magbuwag Ta Kay” is one of the few Cebuano feature films that holds whole rights of its content. It is also a blend of Bisaya artistry, with a rather sentimental track written by Villarante and Vispop’s Gitamondoc entitled “Ayaw La’g Huwat.”
The Magbuwag Ta Kay was officially kicked off in the month of September with an unveiling of the teaser acronym, which was #MTK. It was hosted by executive producer Sunshine Lim and “Tubig Queen” Dodoy Teberio at the SM City Cebu Event Centre.
Other casts include Cebuano talents like Ligaya Rabago, media personality Dante Luzon, Rio Delizo, the Snake Princess, Alem Garcia and Denise Tan, alongside many others, “Magbuwag Ta Kay” is set to grace cinemas come January 2018 and will be shown nationwide. A special Premiere Night will happen on November 30, 2017 at Cinema 8 of SM City Cebu.
