If you’ve been watching Filipino indie films particularly in the ongoing Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino now showing in cinemas in Cagayan de Oro malls, you will notice an actress appearing in two of the 12 films. Cagayan de Oro City’s CHAI FONACIER who is now based in Cebu appears in Patay na si Hesus and Pauwi na.
She did both films last year working with film greats Jaclyn Jose in Patay na si Hesus and Bembol Roco in Pauwi Na.
And just lately, she also starred in the critically acclaimed Respeto which starred rap artists Abra and Loonie.
In case you forgot, Chai first came into the limelight as part of the inaugural edition of Pinoy Dream Academy reality TV show at ABS-CBN won by Yeng Constantino.
