LINGAYEN—“LISPU: Sa Likod ng Tsapa,” a true-to-life stories of policemen in Pangasinan, produced by the Pangasinan Police Provincial Office will soon be shown in local cinemas next year.
The film produced in partnership with Home Court Artistry Productions features real-life inspired stories of policemen in the province.
“While there are no action stunts unlike other police story films, it’s the voice for good policemen who are affected every time they are being stereotyped negatively,” said Harvie Aquino, a renowned film director and a Pangasinense.
Lt. Col. Norman Florentino, PPPO deputy director for administration, said the film is an internal cleansing project of PNP to promote accountability and closer cooperation among police officers instilling discipline and spiritual and moral values in them.
The film’s casts include independent-film actor Akihiro Blanco, Garie Concepcion, Eat Bulaga’s Ms. Millenial Pangasinan Gwendoline Soriano, Edmund Santiago, as well as local talents such as Raul Tamayo, Violy Valdez, and some members of the PPPO.
“We want the public to see the lives of policemen as husbands (wives), fathers (mothers), and protector of the community who continue to walk and sacrifice for the community that we serve,” he said.
Blanco said he is excited for the film as it is his first time to play the role of a policeman. He and other casts underwent police training.
The casts started filming on December 3, featuring different tourist spots in the province. It will be shown on January on selected cinemas in the province. (Helen Martin)
