Storyboard Text

  • When I was a little girl, I loved watching Santacruzan.
  • I was always mesmerized about the beautiful gowns; pretty colors, and the noise in the streets.
  • But I never questioned why there's a need to do that every May.. until I asked my mother.
  • Santacruzan has been a part of our culture because of our religion.
  • Mama, why do we need to celebrate Santacruzan?
  • It commemorates the finding of the Holy Cross by Queen Helena, or Reyna Elena as we call her.
  • It was introduced to us by the Spaniards and ever since then it has become a part of our culture which is identified with youth, love, and romance.
  • So you mean because of our religion, it will forever be a part of our culture?
  • Yes anak. That's how religion affects our culture. They're interconnected.
  • Keep on dreaming, anak.
  • Then if it's forever, I can be Reyna Elena when I grow up!
  • END....
