Meanwhile,“Pro Bernal, Anti Bio” is an uncensored memoir that refuses to be a tribute with the late National Artist for Film Ishmael Bernal’s own personal writings as well as accounts from his friend Jorge Arago and pop historian Angela Stuart-Santiago. “How to Raise a Superstar” was published in partnership with Working Mom and “Pro Bernal, Anti Bio”with Friends of Bernal.
