Bessie Badilla: Dance of My Life (A Cinemalaya Documentary Film)

Previously I posted about a Tourism Ambassadress who has contributed a lot in promoting our country's best, top tourists spots and made a great achievement by putting up a Facebook page, together with her friends, that's been creating a buzz in the Tourism industry. Come Visit My Philippines helped much in the increase of visitors in our country and also made some OFWs re-visit their long-forgotten soil because of the attractive vacay destinations, mouthwatering Filipino delicacies and of course the ever-hospitable 'us'.  This would not be possible if Ms. Bessie Badilla and her great friends, Mr. Francois Medina and Mr. Alex Baguio had not created Come Visit My Philippines.

This 10-month old Philippine tourism promoter page has 38,446 members and still growing. Every month is a new challenge and a theme to celebrate for. Please take a peek of Come Visit My Philippines and ask to join the group to unveil the gorgeous photos that you can only see here in our country.

DANCE OF MY LIFE is a 75-minute documentary that follows Bessie's life,

How did this "woman of a certain age" become Carnival Queen in a 
quintessentially Brazilian event? As Bessie tells her stories
 on DANCE OF MY LIFE, audiences come away feeling 
we should all be dancing too.
