Finally, a local film inspired by our beloved sport, running! This movie is entitled “Thelma” and is inspired by the stories of true Filipino athletes who were discovered in the province, and fought their way to represent the Philippines in the world stage.
“Thelma” is the first full-length feature film production of Time Horizon Pictures and is directed by film and TV-commercial director Paul Soriano. It is the story of a simple young girl from the province—Thelma (played by Maja Salvador) whose family is beset with challenges when she discovers her uncanny gift of speed. Her talent then opens doors for her—to elevate her family’s situation and change the course of her own life. But to do that she will have to run—against all obstacles, against personal hindrances, against shadows from her past, and against her own self-doubts.
