    • Synopsis
    • Packed with action and romance, Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo is a stirringly dramatic account of the story ofAndrés Bonifacio, the founder and leader of the Katipunan, arevolutionary movement to liberate the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule in the late 1890s. This controversial hero is presented as a fierce fighter and brave leader, a compassionate brother and loving husband who endured personal tragedy and sacrificed himself, all for the love of his homeland. Anchored in present-day Manila, three high school students learn from a museum curator that the history they've been taught is perhaps incomplete at best, inaccurate at worst. Objects in the museum become windowsto the past while the interweaving of time periods shows how a historical figure can continue to inspire in the modern world. Robin Padilla brings a quiet dignity to his role as the philosophical and charismatic hero, while displaying his actionprowess in the battle sequences. Bonifacio: Ang Uang Panguloilluminates a historic figure with an impassioned relevance to today's world.
