In Preparation for the 2017 National Heroes Day

August 16, 2017

In August we celebrate the National Language Month, the History Month and the National Heroes Day.

We are all celebrating the three—in one film. I wasn’t thinking of showing it this month for all three reasons but for the last. However, when I come to think of it, in this educational documentary, I used Filipino, our National Language for the narration. And as the film promotes the use and recognition of the Filipino Sign Language as the National Sign Language of Deaf Filipinos, the timing is just perfect. They too have the right to celebrate the National Language Month afterall. Most fittingly, the subject is a historical figure and is considered one of our greatest heroes; paying him a tribute within the History Month, and as part of the celebration of the National Heroes Day [though days ahead because August 28 is a legal holiday] is seemingly pre-arranged.

Above is a grabbed frame from the one minute trailer that I have just finished now. The film is about Apolinario Mabini, the Brains of the Revolution. This is in preparation for the screening that we are going to hold on August 25 at the UP Film Center in UP Diliman, Q.C.
