Thank you Direk Mario O’Hara for everything. Thank you for not selling your soul to the evils of commercialism. Thank you for remaining a true artist. We shall all remember the great things you have done for art, truth and Philippine culture. We shall all miss you and continue to do our best to uphold truth in our own way as artists who have come after you … R.I.P. Mario O’ Hara, Filipino writer, actor, filmmaker …

Mario O’Hara champion and film critic Noel Vera’s personal account of his first meeting with Mario O’Hara.
This is a bummer. I’d wanted to check out his work for some time and I hate having to do it posthumously. Thanks for sharing.
Three Godless Years is a great film. Hope to get my hands on some more of his work.
Thank you Pierre.
Thank you Tommy.
My personal tribute to Direk Mario
wonderful tribute, jp. this is truly a sad day for Philippine cinema.
It’s been a while since I posted here. I was gonna post about him but I see we have some Filipino cinephiles on board.
A sad day indeed Ira …
Thanks for the replies. I’m sure Mario would have appreciated them…
