Consuelo Padillo Osorio is the first Filipino woman to direct a film.
Consuelo Padillo Osorio was credited for her film “Dalagang Luksa” in 1938.
Dalagang Luksa did very well and was soon followed by more lachrymal pictures:
Dolores, Pagsuyo, and Magmamani, before World War II broke out.
After the liberation, Osorio directed ‘Bakya Mo Neneng” which was the first post-war Tagalog film that was played at the Malacañang.
