Independent filmmaker Raymond Red's first crossover to full-length feature is a highly visual chronicle of the rise and fall of revolutionary hero Andres Bonifacio. Noted for its heavy stylistics and painstaking attention to filmic detail, the biopic also tackles the momentous events surrounding the Philippine struggle against Spanish colonialism. The historical epic is a most fitting cinematic memorial to the centenary of Philippine independence.
