From April 2, 3pm to April 9, 3pm, catch Jarell Serencio’s Victor and Chuck Gutierrez’ Heneral Rizal. Heneral Rizal uncovers the story of Paciano Rizal, often regarded as the ever-supportive elder brother of Filipino National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. Unknown to many, Paciano was a proficient general who fought the colonizers, together with Andres Bonifacio and Emilio Jacinto. He was instrumental in liberating Calamba during the Philippine Revolution. Featuring a powerful performance by Tanghalang Pilipino artistic director Nanding Josef, Heneral Rizal will form part of TP's full-length stage production in 2021, aimed to shed new light in understanding nationalism and what it really means to be a Filipino. Film offerings for April 16 to 23 are Ana Agabin’s 24K and Nonilon Abao’s Dagami Daytoy. 24K takes a peek into the secret world of treasure hunting in the Philippines. The film follows Manok and his team of treasure hunters as they return to their treasure site in Suyo, Ilocos Sur. They have been told that the spirits guarding the treasure favor them, and all the signs indicate success. Convinced that their site will yield the elusive treasure, they strive to do whatever it takes to find it.
