Mario O'hara sets sights on BIDASARI

Although Mario O'hara's Ang Paglilitis ni Andres Bonifacio did not make waves at the recent Cinemalaya Film Festival, this did not crush the enthusiasm of the veteran film-making master to plan another history-related project. O'hara is planning a historical epic movie entitled "Bidasari" which is set in the Philippines before the Spanish colonization. O'Hara stated that a movie set in Pre-Colonial Philippines would have beautiful elements which would also include a lot of action, because this would also feature warriors of the early Filipinos. This kind of movie would also be of great help to Filipino students in their studies of History.

Mario O'hara is known for many films that have been etched among the greatest films of Philippine cinema, such as; Bulaklak sa City Jail (1984), Babae sa Breakwater (2004), and the war drama Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos (1976).
