#MMFF2014: Bonifacio Ang Unang Pangulo

This is a film that truly capture our patriotism, a story of a noble hero - Andres Bonifacio.

The true story of Andres Bonifacio, a man who rose as a leader in the fight against the Spanish oppressors, and would gain the enmity of even those fighting for the same cause. 

Andrés Bonifacio y de Castro (November 30, 1863 – May 10, 1897) was a Filipino nationalist and revolutionary leader. He is often called "the Father of the Philippine Revolution". He was a founder and later Supremo ("supreme leader") of the Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan or simply and more popularly called Katipunan, a movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution. He is considered a de facto national hero of the Philippines, and is also considered by some Filipino historians to be the first President of the Philippines (through the revolutionary government he established), but officially he is not recognized as such. --- From Wikipedia

Directed by Enzo Williams and stars Robin Padilla, Vina Morales, Daniel Padilla, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Eddie Garcia, Jericho Rosales, Rommel Padilla, RJ Padilla, Isabel Oli, Ping Medina, Joem Bascon, Cholo Barretto, Jun-Jun Quintana and Isko Moreno.

Actor Robin Padilla, who portrays the titular character Andres Bonifacio, says he hopes to show, through the film, that there was more to the revolutionary hero than being brave and brash, qualities that most people associate with the beloved historical figure.

Vina Morales plays as Andres Bonifacio's second wife, Gregoria de Jesus. Jericho Rosales portrays Jose Rizal. 

“Bonifacio was also smart, loving and prayerful. Before he became leader, he was a follower,” Robin shares.

Here's a significant epic movie that we should not miss this season, recommended especially to the students.
