PULE: Utak ng Rebolusyon in Celebration of the 2017 National Heroes Day

August 11, 2017

Apolinario Mabini was appointed as Chief Adviser of the First President of the Philippine Republic, Emilio Aguinaldo in 1898. He also became the First Secretary of Foreign Affairs [1899], and could have been the First Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines were not for the law at the turn of the century which stated that physically disabled persons could not be elected to the post. Despite that, he earned the monikers “Brains of the Revolution / Utak ng Rebolusyon” and “The Sublime Paralytic / Dakilang Lumpo.” He was most adamant against American sovereignty over the Philippines leading to his exile to Guam in 1901. My documentary PULE tells who he was, and what he actually did for the country. The film, intended for both hearing and Deaf hopes to inspire the audience by sparking patriotism in their hearts, and love of country above Self as exemplified by Mabini.
