Showing of PULE Moved in Time for Apolinario Mabini’s BirthmonthJuly 9, 2016
The original plan to show PULE: Utak ng Rebolusyon /Brains of the Revolution in Metro Manila College, Novaliches, Quezon City was reset to an earlier date by Gawad Metronian Educational Institute, Inc. [GMEFI]. Intended to be shown in time for the Celebration of 2016 National Heroes Day in August, it was moved instead to last week of July.
Apolinario Mabini [1864-1903] was born on July 23, 1864. Hailed as a PWD icon, himself physically disabled, the National Disability Rehabilitation and Prevention Week is held in the Philippines annually from July 17-July 23 to serve as a tribute to the man.
Metro Manila College will sponsor the showing with the hope of sparking nationalism in their students and for them to know who Mabini really was. Though an important figure who helped shaped the destiny of our nation, not so many people, especially young students are aware of his contribution as a hero.
