FIRST off, what makes actress Maja Salvador a Taclobanon?

It’s because her grandfather, master showman Lou Salvador, Sr. was born in Tacloban City, Leyte, and no matter she’s not a resident of the place, Maja has the Taclobanon blood.

Her dad, the late actor Ross Rival, is a son of Lou, Sr.

Taclobanons must be proud of Maja because her latest film project, “Arisaka”, directed by cult filmmaker Mikhail Red, is competing at the 34th Tokyo International Film Festival in Japan.

If the film is in the competition section, so it means Salvador has the chance to win an award like Best Actress because she’s the lead character of the movie, which is about a policewoman (Maja) who has to contend with the hazards of the trade.

Mikhail shot this film during the Covid-19 pandemic and he has to do the post-production of the project while in the middle of the health crisis to catch up with international screenings.
