The documentary promotes the learning and critical understanding of Philippine World War II history, encouraging its audience to remember and discuss solutions to the problems of the present using the past.
“Our intention for this documentary has always been to have it be seen by as many people as possible––to have this forgotten period in Philippine history be remembered,” says Logroño the young director.
The screening is a part of the Spyron-AV Manila Roadshow, which has visited over 40 different locations and screened four different documentaries. “We are so honored to receive this award, and hope that it will help us on our mission to cure the ‘collective amnesia’ that has plagued the nation for too long.” Logroño said.
