An abridged version of this article was published in the Saturday Special Section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer on May 10, 2003.

Last March 12, 2003, at the 14th International Women's Film Festival (March 4-14), which was held at, and organized by, the University of the Philippines Film Center, we saw a wonderful surprise of a movie. The movie was the digital film Angels produced by Star Cinema's now defunct Digital Film Division, then headed by multi-awarded scriptwriter Ricky Lee, who also wrote Angels. Angels was directed, meanwhile, by a hitherto unknown woman to us, named Ellen Ongkeko-Marfil.
