Charo Santos-Concio (St. Paul Manila alumna, AB-CA 1976) was given the Special Mention honor in acting at the 17th Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, held in the Canary Islands for outstanding performance in her comeback film, Ang Babaeng Humayo.
“This piece of good news is always welcome! I am grateful to have been considered worthy of a special mention,” the Kapamilya lady executive said.
She recounted that her director, Lav Diaz, had forwarded an e-mail to her. “The festival head said that the jury was torn, so they made an exception for the first time in the acting category and decided to give this special recognition.”
She asserted: “My thanks to the jury and again thanks to Direk Lav for the trust!”
