Nora Aunor Takes Home Awards For ‘Thy Womb’

Nora Aunor took home the Italian critics’ prize for her performance in the movie, ‘Thy Womb.’

A congressman authored a resolution commending the achievements of Aunor and multi-awarded director Brilliante Mendoza at the recently concluded 69th Venice International Film Festival in Italy.

Bacolod City representative Anthony Rolando T. Golez, Jr. filed on Sept. 10 House Resolution No. 2764 for their work in ‘Thy Womb.’

They also won several awards in the 69th Venice International Film Festival.

The awards are testament to the talent of Filipinos in film and art.

It is also a great source of pride for all Filipinos, Golez said.

Nora received the Bisato d’Oro Award from the Premio Della Critica Indipendente, a jury of independent film critics in Italy.

The actress is the first Filipino to receive such recognition.

The film won the La Navicella and the P. Nazareno Taddei Award.

The film was well-received at the film fest, getting a five-minute standing ovation after its screening last Sept. 6.

Goleza also filed the resolution in April urging the President Noynoy Aquino and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts to confer the National Artist award to Aunor.
