MY FRIENDS, A MOVIE WITH A COCKFIGHTING THEME "PRINSIPE NG SABONG" WILL BE SHOWN AT WORLD-FEST INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL IN HOUSTON, TEXAS. WE NEED TO SUPPORT THIS. PLEASE HAVE TIME TO WATCH OR CONTACT FRIENDS AND RELATIVES LIVING IN AND AROUND HOUSTON TO WATCH THIS MOVIE. THANK YOU
Thanks again, I really appreciate your offer to help us promote our movie “Prince of Cockfighting”. We have the same goal… to promote to the world our beloved sports of cockfighting. This is the reason that on our very first movie venture the theme is about cockfighting in general.
Because my wife --- Armie Fernandez-Monton knows that I love cockfighting so much, she personally wrote the story of the movie for me. The name of our production company is “When Armie met Monty Productions, Inc” and it was only established last December 2008.
The website of the movie is currently under construction; it is expected to be finished next week. I will forward to you the link once completed. For the mean time here synopsis of the movie:
It’s a story about the search for Prinsipe Sabong.
The best gamecock that beat Joey’s 12-time Champion cock.
He went back home to look for it.
But Joey found Love instead.
Love of his father.
Love of his brother.
Love of his adoptive siblings…
But the forbidden love of a woman
prompted him to leave his home once again.
So when he finally found Prinsipe Sabong,
The search ended. But not the quest.
For your info… "Prince of Cockfighting" was chosen as one of the finalist among thousands of film entries in this year World-Fest International Film Festival in Houston, Texas and we were invited to attend the Awards Night on the 3rd week of April.
