This Twitter Space about Martial Law films will go live today!

Feb 18, 2022 0 comments

As the son of the Philippines' former dictator emerges from the shadows to run for the presidency this coming election, the stories of the atrocities of the Martial Law era are once again the talk of the nation.

From social media posts, sites, and online conversations, the internet has now also become a breeding ground for disinformation, and propaganda aiming to rewrite history. And with that, now, more than ever, people need to understand the truth of the Martial Law era.

In efforts to diminish the casualty of misinformation about the matter, two popular Twitter Spaces are collaborating this Saturday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m. to discuss on “how cinema has been shaped by Martial Law and how film as a medium has also redefined our collective memory of this period.”
 


The Twitter spaces entitled "#HistorySpacePH” will be hosted by Twitter users @indiohistorian, @juansinag, and @akosibluethree. While “#CineSpaces” will be hosted by Twitter users @leanderings, @paulocetamol, @heyrow, and @billiejims. 


According to Kristoffer Pasion, one of the hosts of the Twitter Spaces, the gathering will not only focus on some of the post-powerful movies of the Martial Law era but also those that do not fall under the history category. Such as “Temptation Island,” “Scorpio Nights,” “Panday,” “Darna,” and “Bukas Luluhod ang mga Tala.”
