There is no such thing as "coincidence". We meet people simply because of certain reasons..a purpose. Mica Rodriguez as well as the cast of Kuya Bunso are my dear friends in the blogging community, have united to fulfill Mica's vision and passion to make a film about autism. She has dear Carlo, her baby brother as inspiration..and most if not the entirety of the film is based on her life with Carlo.
I for one have a nephew here in Manila and another in Australia in the same condition. It takes a lot of patience, effort, understanding..real sacrifices when it comes to having a relative with autism. And the misconceptions of other people here in our country adds more to the challenge.
It took only two days to finish the shoot..no hassles, almost all one-takes only..unspoken support among everyone. I cannot wait for other people to see this truly independent film because in just a few words, actions, minutes..you'll understand the real plight of the people whom we cannot understand as of yet, those who are oblivious about the real world..the Kuya Bunsos's in our lives as well as the people who unconditionally love them.
