Tabi Po, A Graphic Novel And A TV Masterpiece

“Tabi Po” series is a TV adaptation of  Mervin Malonzo’s best-selling graphic novel series with the same title that won the National Book Awards for Graphic Literature,  a new cinematic TV Series Masterpiece this season.

Cignal TV, through its SARI SARI Channel, brings you a brave and bold TV series about the lives of aswangs in “Tabi Po”.  In relation with the said TV Series, they set a Media Launch dated October 20, 2017 in URBN Quezon City.

 

For me, the viewers will ask themselves literally how the TV series created with the use of advance graphic art and technology that will enhance or influence the current viewers of today in relation with the current environment and nature in the community.

Tabi Po tells the story of Elias, a neophyte aswang, Born from a tree during the country’s Spanish era, Elias embarks on a journey with two older aswangs, Tasyo and Sabel, in the quest to understand their true nature. Along the way, Elias meets Salome, a sex slave of the friars, and falls in love with her. In the middle of a rising revolution, Elias is forced to face his own battles – his love for Salome versus his hunger of flesh, the growing rift between himself and Tasyo, the society’s stigma with aswangs, and the battle with own inner monster.

The viewers will also expect that Tabi Po shows love, beauty, amidst the horrific lives of these creatures called aswang. Where did they come from? What is their purpose? Is there more to the massive killing, gore and bloodshed typically associated with them?

Directed by award-winning director Paul Basinilio, Tabi Po stars a powerhouse cast led by Luis Alandy as Tasyo, Phoebe Walker as Sabel, Jourdanne Castillo as Salome, and AJ Muhlach as Elias.
