MANILA -- Comedienne Pokwang has left for the United States to shoot an upcoming romantic comedy film, with the working title "Ms. Edsa Woolworth."

In her official Instagram account, Pokwang said she will be in San Francisco for three weeks to shoot the movie, which is part of the 20th anniversary of The Filipino Channel and will be directed by John D. Lazatin.

In 2012, Pokwang garnered positive reviews for her performance in TFC's "A Mother's Story."

"Ako'y maghahanap buhay muna, tiis na hindi makasama ang anak," she wrote in the caption.

Pokwang also shared a video of the crew surprising her with a birthday cake.

The comedienne celebrated her birthday last August 27.
