Last screening of manamko’ fundraising film

TODAY, Wednesday, the last screening of the manamko’s fundraising movie, “The Forgotten Island,”will take place at the Regal Cinemas Saipan.

Office on Aging Director Walter Manglona directed and produced the movie through his Jade Pro Studios.

“This will be the last chance for people to see this film since it will not be released on DVD or Blu-Ray,” he said.

The screening starts at 7 p.m., Wednesday, and tickets are $15 each.

In addition to the featured film, Manglona said they will also screen “The Adventures of Pedro Malas” series; music videos featuring the Tree of Life; and a short segment showcasing the programs of the Office on Aging for senior citizens.

“It was a privilege directing and producing this film,” Manglona said. “I see how proud our elders are of their movie, and that was my goal: to make our elders happy and excited.”

He added, “I hope more people will show up for the final screening.”

Manglona is thankful to those in the community who have watched the movie which was shown every Wednesday evening for the past four weeks.

He also thanked Department of Community and Cultural Affairs Secretary Robert Hunter for supporting the project, and its sponsors: E-Land Group, McDonald’s, Galvin Deleon Guerrero, Star ATV and Regal Saipan general manager William Santos.

On Thursday, there will be a raffle draw of the movie tickets at the Senior Citizens Center.
