Every Filipino was taught in school about our struggle for freedom from Spain. The Philippine Revolution was an armed military conflict between the Filipinos and the Spanish colonial authorities which resulted in the secession of the Philippine Islands from the Spanish Empire.
The Filipino Revolution and its ideals were an inspiration to the nationalists and film producers. These movies are important reminder of the Katipuneros’ sacrifices to gain independence. On the field of battle they have given their lives not only in combat or in the open plain but also in martyrdom’s plight.
Here are 2 movies produced in the 1930s with Spanish - Philippine War theme.
