The epic premiere night of Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino's first film together, Isa Pa, With Feelings, took place on October 15 at SM Megamall. Aside from the celebrities who came to show their support, fans also spotted Maine's dad, Teodoro "Teddy" Mendoza, on the ~black carpet~. What we super love about the night was that he was wearing a shirt WITH MAINE'S FACE printed on it!
In a video, he even proudly shows off his outfit to the camera! Twitter user @MsM1995 wrote: "Napakayaman ng mga Mendoza pero Tatay Teddy opted to wear a shirt with Maine's face. Tatay be like, 'Proud Tatay to my daughter.' I'm sure he was even more proud after watching IPWF [Isa Pa With Feelings]."
Maine's boyfriend Arjo Atayde was noticeably absent during the premiere, although he did dedicate his PMPC Best Drama Supporting Actor award to Maine during his acceptance speech. Sayang, we were waiting for a photo of Arjo with Maine's dad sana!
Isa Pa, With Feelings tells the story of Gali (Carlo), a deaf man who starts teaching his neighbor Mara (Maine) sign language. Despite the communication *barrier*, they end up falling in love! People who were lucky enough to attend the film's premiere are gushing about it, saying that it makes them want to learn sign language even more and that Carlo's eyes "speak to the audience." The movie starts showing in theaters today, October 16!
