From Maundy Thursday (April 17) to Black Saturday (April 19), GMA Pinoy TV will showcase some of the best Filipino film titles on GMA Pinoy Blockbuster.

On Maundy Thursday, witness a modern-day Magdalene story with Santa Santita, whose lead characters struggle with their faith in light of their promiscuous occupations.

In Mourning Girls, featuring Glydel Mercado, Ricky Davao and Chin-chin Guttierez, the life of Lupita (Mercado) takes an unexpected turn upon the death of her husband (Davao) as three other women show up to his funeral claiming inheritance rights.

The third movie offering for Maundy Thursday is a tale of true love that transcends different lifetimes as shown in Eternity, starring Dingdong Dantes, Iza Calzado, Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras.

Meanwhile, the classic films Mga Mata ni Anghelita, starring the late Julie Vega with an all-star cast, and God’s Little Children, featuring Sunshine Dizon, Strawberry, and Daria Ramirez will be shown on Good Friday (April 18).

Then, three close friends, who started as DJs in the 60s, realize their dream of visiting the holy land and retracing the steps of Jesus Christ in Banal na Lakbay Sa Yakap ni Hesukristo. Multi-awarded TV and radio anchor and GMA Network Consultant for Radio Operations Mike Enriquez, TV host and actor Joey de Leon and radio DJ and concert promoter Danee Samonte a.k.a Steve O’ Neal take Kapuso viewers along on their journey to Bethlehem, Nazareth, Cana, and Jerusalem as they participate in religious rituals. Alternately, all 3 friends will carry a cross as they retrace Jesus’ journey in the Stations of the Cross. This will be followed by the Siyete Palabras (Seven Last Words).
 On Black Saturday, distinguished industry veterans will deliver meaningful performances in Ano Ang Kulay ng Mukha ng Diyos, topbilled by veteran actors Gina Alajar, Michael de Mesa and Edu Manzano, and Umiyak Pati Langit starring Helen Gamboa, Janice de Belen and Dante Rivero.

And lastly, GMA Pinoy TV presents the GMA Lenten Drama Special Panalangin, starring Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera on Easter Sunday (April 20). The story is centered on Lauren, whose life is derailed by a typhoon that ends the life of her family and her lover. When all hope is lost, she meets a dying girl with a bucket list who makes her realize that life is worth living.
