Mayor Marcos Mamay’s remarkable and challenging life experiences have inspired him and his family, to bring his biopic to the big screen, with the film Lanao: The Marcos Mamay Story.

Apart from his role as a public servant, Mayor Mamay is also the producer of his own story with Neal ‘Buboy’ Tan directing, and Jeric Raval and Ara Mina headlining the project.

Jeric portrays Mayor Mamay in the movie and, as he mentioned, he had to meticulously study the mayor’s mannerisms and way of speaking. He expressed the importance of accurately portraying the mayor’s character to avoid any misrepresentation.

The film is expected to be exceptional as it vividly portrays the colorful life of Mayor Mamay. “While there might not be many action scenes, the intensity of the movie is gripping. Mayor Mamay is truly a kind-hearted individual,” said Jeric.

On the other hand, Ara got to know Mayor Mamay’s wife and was personally taught by her how to dress and carry herself. During the shooting, she even wore clothes from the mayor’s wife, ensuring authenticity in her portrayal.

Both Ara and Jeric have remarkable onscreen chemistry and are a perfect match as a couple in the film. Their timeless appearances give the movie a nostalgic feel, reminiscent of a journey to the past.

To celebrate this endeavor, celebrities and politicians joined forces at Mayor Mamay’s birthday party, held recently at the Valle Verde Country Club in Pasig City.

Among the notable guests at Mayor Mamay’s birthday party were Congressman Pantaleon Alvarez, Honorable Samira Gutoc, and several other politicians.

From the showbiz industry, notable figures such as Ricky Davao, Julio Diaz, Katrina Paula, Andrea del Rosario, Alma Concepcion, Kelvin Miranda, and many others were also present, showing their support and appreciation for the remarkable story being brought to life on the silver screen.

Mamay is widely respected in the Philippines as one of the country’s most influential and inspiring figures for promoting peace and development among Christians and Muslim communities.

Beyond the numerous awards he has received for his public service, he fearlessly advocates for the rights and dignity of all people, particularly in resolving family feuds and ridos (clan conflicts).
