“Apolinario Mabini: The Sublime Paralytic” – Reshowing at the Department of Foreign Affairs

July 18, 2017

“Apolinario Mabini: The Sublime Paralytic” will be shown again tomorrow, July 19 at 2 p.m. at the Department of Foreign Affairs Bldg. located in Pasay City as part of their annual celebration of the 2017 National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week. It was first shown in 2015. DFA’s interest in Mabini of course lies in the fact that he was the first Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the First Philippine Republic. He was appointed in January 1899.

Announcement Used by DFA the First Time “Apolinario Mabini: The Sublime Paralytic” was shown in 2015

According to the letter of request made by DFA’s Human Resource Management Office: “The film showing  is the Department’s fitting tribute to Mabini, the first Secretary of Foreign Affairs, whose heroism is worthy of emulation by the Filipino people notwithstanding his physical disability.” They describe the film as a “documentary that truly reflects cultural and political significance and underscores the noble heritage of the Filipino race.”

The Sublime Paralytic will be preceded by a 10-min AVP entitled “Inclusion.”
