00 banat pete ampoloquioAiko Melendez has proven once more her acting caliber. She recently bagged the highly-coveted Best Lead Actress in a Foreign Language Film award from the 7th International Filmmakers Festival of World Cinema in London for Direk Louie Ignacio’s Asintado (Between the Eyes). Aiko bes-ted seven other actresses from different countries in the same category.

The movie, which is an official Cinemalaya entry last year, is Aiko’s first foray into indie film. In Asintado, Aiko plays Julia, a widowed mother of two who finds herself at the crossroads of choo- sing between saving her older son or risking her younger son’s safety. The story is situated in a town in Nueva Eciija and takes place during the Taong Putik festival.

Aiko was not able to attend the grand event in London because of prior showbiz commitments: she is part of the cast of ABS-CBN’s Inday Bote and an indie film titled Dalu-yong.

“This award somehow boosted my confidence and it made me love myself more,” says Aiko. “But the ho- nor isn’t just mine alone. It’s for every Filipino.”

Aiko is a Backroom artist. For inquiries, call Backroom Inc at 4351108, 4351120 and 9280717 or email us at [email protected] Like Backroom Inc. on facebook at and or follow Backroom Inc. on twitter at
