I took this photo of "Himala" from my phone at the Ishmael Bernal Gallery of the UP Film Institute. I have been a fan of this film even before I learned to appreciate the aesthetics of filmmaking.
The performance of Nora Aunor as she claimed "Walang Himala" was just so powerful for me. I was barely two years old when this was first shown. But the magic of that cinematic moment resounded to me way up into my adult life.
And even for that short moment, I think Nora Aunor should forever be a treasure in the history of Philippine Culture.
