As part of its 25th year of bringing life to the stories of Filipinos, ABS-CBN’s Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK), Asia’s longest-running drama anthology, is taking it a plane higher as it brings the first “Kwentuhang Kapamilya” outside the Philippines to kababayans in Madrid, Spain with Ms. Charo Santos, and to Filipinos worldwide via its global online premiere on TFC.tv on June 27, 8 p.m. Manila time.
As a way of thanking its viewers, ABS-CBN and The Filipino Channel (TFC) are bringing the storytelling closer to Filipinos of the world by bringing no less than Ms. Santos to hear for herself, the accounts of kababayans who have stories to tell and valuable life lessons to impart.
Over the past 25 years, “MMK” has become part of the lives of Filipinos as it mirrored their life struggles, triumphs and lessons, as essayed in its tagline “Ikaw Ang Bida Sa Kuwento Mo.”
First seen on television in 1991, it has been shared and experienced by audiences across platforms: radio, movies, music, books, merchandise and including its sub-titled version for non-Filipino speaking viewers of TFC.
As an essential part of the anniversary, “MMK 25” launches “Kwentuhang Kapamilya” where overseas Filipinos (OFs) will share the stories themselves, starting in Madrid, true to its adage, where hopefully viewers worldwide can derive lessons from kababayans who have been there.
The narratives tell of parents, siblings and spouses who may have had a hard time at first but worked their way to success and are now able to enjoy their lives with their loved ones. Their struggles may persist in different forms, but at the end of the day, “MMK 25” wishes to impart that they just need to be resilient and focused on their dreams.
Playing important roles as well in the first if a series of inspirational talks is ABS-CBN Europe, Middle East and Africa Managing Director Kai V. Rodriguez and the TFC team in Europe, host Amy Perez, singer Jona, and Filipino community leaders.
Together, let us witness the stories of kababayans that inspire in “Kwentuhang Kapamilya’s” global online premiere on June 27 at 8 p.m. via TFC.tv worldwide, for free. The first of the inspirational talk series can also be seen in the Philippines via mmk.abs-cbn.com
