Maryo J. de los Reyes took the route of stage and television before moving on to film directing. He has a communications degree from the premier state university where he served for a while as a lecturer. During his active days in theater, he was very much involved with the Philippine Educational Theater Association not only in staging plays. He joined PETA’s teaching force, CITASA, and was its program director from 1975 to 1979. In television, his name was very much identified with the drama anthology show topbilled by superstar Nora Aunor, Ang Makulay na Daigdig ni Nora. His association with Lino Brocka gave him the training to direct for movies. He debuted with High School Circa ‘65 in 1979 and immediately followed it up in the same year with Gabun—Ama Mo, Ama Ko that won him a Papal Award. Among other recognition he garnered as film director are two Catholic Mass Media Awards for Tagos ng Dugo in 1987 and My Other Woman in 1990 and a Star Award from the Philippine Movie Press Club for Sinungaling Mong Puso in 1992. Hailed to this day is the groundbreaking youth-oriented flick, Bagets, which he made in 1984. Maryo belongs to the generation acknowledged as the forerunner of the Second Golden Age in Philippine Cinema from the ’70s to the mid-’80s and is considered at present as one of the most prolific mainstream filmmakers with a highly diverse and exciting body of work.
