In Celebration of 2016 Philippine Independence Day, PULE Screens at Rizal Park Visitor’s CenterJune 11, 2016
I just came to know today, that the showing of our documentary PULE: Utak ng Rebolusyon / Brains of the Revolution will push through tomorrow, June 12, as part of the nation’s celebration of the 118th Philippine Independence Day. The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) has informed me this week about the National Parks Development Committee’s interest to show our historical film on Apolinario Mabini, first Philippine Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Prime Minister.
It is unquestionably timely since a segment that led to the declaration and proclamation of the Philippine Independence in 1898 is part of the docu. Venue is at Rizal Park Visitor’s Center in Manila. Moreover, viewers can relate to the historical significance of Jose Rizal [after whom the park was named] as his martyrdom is also included in the film. Rizal’s death was a turning point in our history.
Incidentally, the day Apolinario Mabini was summoned to come to Cavite by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, first President of the Philippine Republic was on June 12, 1898. Aguinaldo ordered the making of the first Philippine flag, and the composition of the national hymn by Julian Felipe in time for that celebration.
PULE was produced by Miryad Visyon in collaboration with DLS-CSB School of Deaf Education and Applied Studies (SDEAS) and the NCCA. It will be screened at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Admission is free!
