Mother Lily Monteverde just turned 80 this month and we have this little video as a short tribute to the woman who did so much for the local cinema.

A true-blue movie fan, she skipped classes just to watch the movies of her idols. She stalked them, waited for them in studio gates.

Her love for movies pushed her to chase a dream and work real hard to be part of the industry that captured her.

She started trends and created stars that the public loved.

And during the years when local cinema was in its lowest, she continued to produce films to keep the industry alive.

For this, the local show business is grateful to the one and only Lily Yu Monteverde—the Mother of Showbiz.
