DIREK GIL PORTES, 71


From the book- URIAN Anthology 1990-1999


---to read, click image to enlarge---

Acclaimed Filipino director Gil Portes, known for “Miss X”, “Merika” and “Mulanay”, passed away on Wednesday night, May 24, in his home in Quezon City. He was 71 years old.


Considered the country's "original indie director," Portes directed several award-winning films, such as "Saranggola," "Gatas sa Dibdib ng Kaaway," and "Mga Munting Tinig," which were all submitted as official Philippine entries for best foreign language film in the US Academy Awards.


Portes also worked with some of the country's biggest stars including Dolphy in "Markova: Comfort Gay" and veteran actress Nora Aunor in "Merika".
Portes graduated with a Journalism degree at University of Santo Tomas but his first job was in advertising. At 23, he joined ABS-CBN as a production assistant. 
He later on received a scholarship grant at the City University of New York, where he studied television and film production. 
He made his directorial debut in 1976 with the film "Tiket Mama! Tiket Ale! Sa Linggo ang Bola."

THE SEVENTIES # 642: NORA AUNOR (IN THE TITLE ROLE), CELIA RODRIGUEZ, EDDIE GARCIA, PARALUMAN, FRED MONTILLA, BERT LEROY, JR., JOHNNY DELGADO IN "SUPER GEE" (1973)




In the early 70s, arch rival Vilma Santos did several movies where she appeared in sci-fi, fantasy movies. She donned the Darna costume for the first time in Mars Ravelo’s Lipad Darna Lipad. She also did other equally hit movies, Phantom Lady, Vivian Volta and Wonder Vi. Not to be outdone, Nora Aunor looking for a material to suit her image, bought the film right of Zoila’s Super Gee, which was serialized in Darna Komiks in 1972. The movie was released in 1973 under her own NV Productions. Nora was awesome in an almost all-black outfit and was even great doing those spectacular stunts.
