At the media conference for the BG Productions International film, Latay on January 24, actor Allen Dizon voiced his opinion on abusive relationships.
Dizon asserted that it would be better for couples in abusive relationships to separate.
“Kapag ganon, maghiwalay na lang kayo para at least wala ng masaktan, wala ng mananakit, wala ng kakagat ng sakitan. Kasi ‘yung dumating ‘yung point na sinaktan mo ‘yung tao, siguro ‘yung respeto mo mawawala na eh.”
He cited the impact of abuse in relationships, especially with their trust, respect, and affection.
“Kahit siya ‘yung respeto at pagmamahal niya sayo, nawawala ‘yan eh. Kumbaga hindi–kumbaga may hangganan ‘yung pagmamahal. Pero, ‘yung pagmamahal mo sa tao na sinaktan ka, paulit-ulit kang sinaktan, mahal mo pa rin ‘yung tao, mayroon pa rin hangganan. Kaya dapat itreasure mo na lang ‘yung tao.”
Dizon also highlighted how talking things out would help those going through troubled relationships.
“Siguro kung may problema kayo, pag-usapan ninyo ng maayos kaysa magbugbugan kayo, magpatayan kayo, di ba? At least pag-usapan ng maayos. Kung mainit ulo ninyo, maghiwalay muna kayo. Pag malamig na pag-usapan ninyo kung ano ang problema.”
As for their film, Dizon stars in Latay, a BG Productions International Inc film, with actress Lovi Poe.
The film also features a powerhouse cast with Snooky Serna, Soliman Cruz, Mariel de Leon, Adrian Cabido, Renerich Ocon, Tabs Sumulong, Adda Musni, Khey Dalit, Yana Alvaro, Rhea Usares, and Lucas Dizon.
Under the direction of Ralston Jover, Latay premieres at Gateway Cinema 1, SM North Edsa, on January 22, 2023. They will also have a theatrical release for the film in selected cinemas nationwide, starting February 8.
