Fast forward to today and Erik has numerous critically-acclaimed films under his belt, namely On The Job and Honor Thy Father. These movies earned him nominations for Best Director in the Gawad Urian Awards and Film Academy of the Philippines Awards. Erik won the latter.
Philippine Entertainment Portal reported that Erik took to Twitter to express his sentiments about the current regime, particularly President Duterte
He said: “In case you haven’t read my tweets before, I’ll say it again: ‘Sa lahat ng bumoto, pu**ng ina nyo!’ Isa pa: ‘Pu**ng ina nyo!’”
Before his controversial tweet, Erik posted something about ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) to whom the Maute Group currently terrorizing Mindanao dedicated their heinous actions.
He said: “Corruption is like a bad habit here. The country is like one big Sopranos clan.” His statements were made around the time when his socio-political film, On The Job, was shown.
He expounded on the film’s theme of corruption and added: “We have always been a country whose politicians are like gangsters. We live in a country where everyone and anyone know each other and favors are the means of negotiations.”
