“I think I might be a little too late for that,” Anne Curtis said of the idea of doing an indie film.
The 28-year-old host-actress, however, cleared that she is not closing her door on doing indie films in the future, “We never know. Well, I did an indie film in the States (“Blood Ransom”) that has yet to come out so we’ll wait for that.”
For now, she expressed her happiness with what’s happening in the career of her 19-year-old sister, Jasmine Curtis, who stars in the indie film “Transit,” an official entry to the ongoing Cinemalaya Film Festival. “I’m super excited for Jasmine because she’s doing something that I’ve never been able to do so I’m really, really happy for her,” she said.
Anne and Jasmine’s parents flew all the way from Melbourne to Manila to support the latter in her first big project.
Jasmine is excited and nervous at the same time. She adds that more than receiving an award, she wants the people to understand what’s really happening to the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in Israel, “I hope they understand the troubles that the OFWs face in there. I didn’t even know what’s happening in Israel before I read the script.”
She adds, “I hope this film brings the message to everyone here in the Philippines, because lahat tayo (all of us) we know what OFWs are going through in America, in Japan, in Canada pero (but) in Israel we hardly know what’s going on. I’m just glad to be part of the film that could do that job for the OFWs there.”
