MANILA — The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) is holding a one-time screening of its film this Monday night to pay tribute to the late National Artist for Theater Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio.

“MALA (Movies Adapted from Literary Arts): Ibong Adarna” will be shown on the CCP Office of the President Facebook page at 6 p.m. on January 4.

The movie, which premiered last October 2020, was directed by actor Xian Lim and written by Ony Carcamo. It incorporated puppetry, something that Lapeña-Bonifacio was known for developing in the Philippines and parts of Southeast Asia.
