GMA News and Public Affairs presents a Halloween series this October, titled “Elemento“.
In the series, ‘kapre’, ‘tikbalang’, ‘duwende’, ‘manananggal’ and other underworld creatures are presented not as elements of darkness but as beings who face difficulties preserving their own kind in an increasing modern world.
Solenn Heussaff will grace the series as a beautiful river fairy against water pollution. She will be joined by other elementals who are all fighting for a cause including a manananggal for the protection of children (played by Glaiza de Castro) and a kapre and his best friend (played by Kuya Bodjie Pascua) for the preservation of the forest. Also in the cast is the hunk actor, Carlos Agassi.
The big twist in the series: humans are the villains while the Elementos are the heroes.
Conceptualized by Ivy Magparangalan, written by Urian winner Zig Dulay, directed by acclaimed horror director Topel Lee, Elemento premieres on October 10 on GMA 7.
