Dominic Nuesa is the visionary behind Ang Araw sa Likod Mo – a film that’s toured the world and has been nominated for, and won, numerous international awards. Produced by Nuesa’s An Earth Below Productions, the film tackles the horrors and hardships of war in Mindanao as soldiers and civilians alike try to survive the war against terrorism.
Majority of the film’s proceeds will go on and benefit the HERO Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping the families of AFP soldiers who’ve fallen in the line of duty by providing an education for their children.
Starring Ping Medina, Bong Cabrera and Mike Liwag, this is Dominic Nuesa’s Feature Film debut.
We talked to Dominic to learn more about his passion project.
Can you tell us something about the movie? Tell us about Hero Foundation?
Three years ago, I was shooting a promotional video for HERO Foundation. I came to be inspired about what they stand for and the noble purpose they serve. HERO is an NGO that provides scholarships to the children of our soldiers who have been killed or incapacitated during combat. I told HERO that I want to produce and direct films that feature the sacrifice and heroism of our soldiers. One of these films is "Ang Araw sa Likod Mo", an advocacy film that has donated proceeds to HERO.
