In celebration of the 26th Anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution, Knowledge Channel presents the following programs to commemorate one of the most famous, well-known historical event in the Philippines.
EDSAngangdaan: The EDSA Stories Film Festival
EDSAngangdaan: The EDSA Stories Film Festival is part of Focus on the Global South-Philippines’ broader contribution to the 25th 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, will paint a broad canvas of Philippine society and history in relation to the three EDSAs over the years. Stories of mothers and wives of the rebelling soldiers in EDSA; stories of farmers, politicians and street children; stories of ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances. The Film festival presents all these vital stories with the aim of furthering social and historical education, of turning cinema into a vehicle for socio-political change.
