In celebration of the 28th Anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution and the National Arts Month, Knowledge Channel airs the following specials:
For the EDSA People Power Anniversary:
EDSAngangdaan: The EDSA Stories Film Festival
The EDSA Stories Film Festival is part of Focus on the Global South-Philippines’ broader contribution to the anniversary of the People Power Revolution, under its EDSA Stories Project.
These short films, each produced under a film grant as well as Focus’s own documentary, EDSAngangdaan: Mga Pagtatagpo’t Pagpapasiya, paint a broad canvas of Philippine society and history in relation to the three EDSA uprisings over the years. These are stories of mothers and wives of the rebelling soldiers in EDSA; stories of farmers, politicians and street children; and stories of ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances. The film festival presents all these vital stories with the aim of furthering social and historical education, and of turning cinema into a vehicle for socio-political change.
