A Filipina actress brought pride to the country after winning a major awards at the prestigious Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA).

Actress Crisel Consunji won the Best New Performer Award for portraying an overseas Filipino worker in the movie “Still Human”.

“It seems to tell the world that in Hong Kong, when we celebrate our diversity, we move forward together,” she said in her acceptance speech.

Consunji also expressed her gratitude to the OFWs who shared their story in order for her to give justice to her role in the film.

“Thank you to all the women who bravely shared with me their stories. Kayo ay mga bagong bayani. You are modern heroes. Ang karangalang ito ay para sa inyo. Maraming salamat. Thank you very much,” she said.

Aside from her Best New Performer Award, Consunji was also nominated for the Best Actress category for the same role.

In the said movie, Consunji played a photographer who decided to let go of her passion to go to Hong Kong and make a living by working as a domestic helper there.

In the said foreign land, she was employed by a paralyzed divorcee Cheong-wing (played Anthony Wong) to be his caregiver.

They eventually live under the same roof through different seasons, and learn more about each other and about themselves.
