Rappler Entertainment on Kumu: Janine Gutierrez, JP Habac on love in quarantine, ‘Dito at Doon’

The director and star of the movie talk about love in quarantine and how 'Dito at Doon' came to be

For many Filipinos, most of 2020 and what we’ve gone through so far in 2021 was a never-ending cycle of isolation and connection. More than a year into a pandemic that’s forced most of us to stay at home and wreaked havoc on our relationships, both with ourselves and others, it can feel near-impossible to think of a world where majority of our interactions are done face-to-face and not in front of a screen.

So what happens when a connection – between two budding lovers – starts online and crosses over offline? It’s a question that’s at the core of TBA Studios’ Dito at Doon, starring Janine Gutierrez and JC Santos.

For Rappler Entertainment’s debut in the world of Kumu, we have as our guests Janine and JP Habac, the film’s director.
