On Citizen Jake's Facebook page, then 21-year-old Charo Santos-Concio is featured in a clip from Mike de Leon's award-winning 1977 movie, Itim.

This is the future ABS-CBN CCO's very first movie, where she also won the best actress trophy from the Asian Film Festival held that year.

In this scene, Charo as Teresa is possessed by the spirit of Rosa (played by Susan Valdez). Rosa reveals, through Teresa what Dr. Torres (played by Mario Montenegro) did to her.

Itim, according to the Facebook page, is yet to be restored, but its negatives have undergone 4K scanning at the L'Imaggine Ritrovata in Bologna, Italy. The film elements of Itim are currently kept at the British Film Institute Archive, together with another Filipino classic film, Maynila.
