The Independent film “Magtiwala Ka:  A Super Typhoon Yolanda Story” mirrors Globe Telecom’s disaster relief efforts during the worst typhoon in Philippine history which affected thousands of Filipino lives particularly in Eastern Visayas.

“Magtiwala Ka” shows actual video footages of the typhoon’s aftermath especially how relief distribution was conducted amidst the people’s struggle to meet their basic needs such as food, water, and shelter.

Movie actress Keanna Reeves leads the cast of the movie as it presents the challenges of a Yolanda survivor and how she was able to rise above the challenges. 

Inspiration for the film stems from the actual experience of Director Joric Raquiza who also lost a home and a resort he saved up for so many years. “For me, it’s only a material loss.  I am grateful to God that my family is still alive. I would also want to thank the people who endorsed this film and believe in it,” he said.

The movie is presented by Globe and will be shown on July 16 at SM Cinemas, Robinson’s Movieworld, and Ever Commonwealth and Ortigas theaters. Advanced screening will be held on July 14.
