Jul 28, 2022 0 comments



In case you didn’t know, a movie about the experiences of Martial Law activists is set to arrive on August 3, 2022. Yes, it coincides with the premiere of [that] controversial film.


Adapted from the 2016 hit musical play entitled Katips: Ang Mga Bagong Katipunero, ‘KATIPS: The Movie’ is a musical film directed (and starred in) by Vincent M. Tañada and produced by Philstagers Films. The film revisits the dark history of the Philippines–the Martial Law era and tells of the struggles that the student activists and martyrs endured. 


‘KATIPS is a tale of the young, in their fight for their ideals, how big one can get against a force too much bigger than yourself.’ said Vincent Tanada said in a Facebook post.


Tanada also shared during the KATIPS press conference last November 27, 2021, that the film has no political agenda and that its sole objective is to convey what really happened in Philippine history, “[N]angyari po ito sa ating kasaysayan. Nobody can ever invalidate the experience of people. Nobody can ever say na, ‘Hindi iyan totoo!” Furthermore, he added that his and his family’s personal experiences during the dark era inspired the making of the film.

The cast lineup includes the star-studded Mon Confiado, Kapamilya actor Jerome Ponce, Vince Tañada, Sazchna Laparan, Nicole Asensio, as well as The Philippine Stagers ensemble. It also features the music made by Awit Awardee Pipo Cifra. 


FAMAS Nominations 


Just recently, KATIPS has garnered 17 nominations for the upcoming Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards (FAMAS)



In our society today, where history is compared to mere chismis, where disinformation and historical revisionism are highly rampant, and wherein another Marcos sits in the palace, an eye-opener and truth-telling film such as KATIPS: The Movie is just what we need.
