The Dawn’s award-winning bio-pic premieres on the MYX Channel TONIGHT @ 9PM!
Part documentary, part drama, it follows the roller-coaster ride of this iconic rock band. Originally composed of Teddy Diaz on guitar, JB Leonor on drums, Caloy Balcells on bass, and Jett Pangan on vocals, the band rose to become one of the most influential, if well-loved band, in the country. It has weathered murders and mutinies, triumphs and heartbreaks, and the sturm und drang of publicized line-up changes -– and could very well be the story of every band, or every musician, in the Philippines, who have had to fight hard for their place in the sun.
The film features outstanding performances by Ping Medina (as Teddy Diaz), Agot Isidro (as Jett’s long-suffering wife), Mylene Dizon (as a grown-up groupie), with an unexpected cameo of Karl Roy. With musical score by Francis Reyes and Buddy Zabala, the movie also reminds audiences of The Dawn’s anthemic hits, such as “Enveloped Ideas” and “Salamat.”
“Tulad ng Dati” won ‘Best Picture’ at CineMalaya 2006 and was an official entry at both the Pusan and Hawaii International Film Fests, while also winning an award at the Gawad Urian 2007.
