Spanish Film Festival
‘Epic’ is one word that springs to mind in describing this grand-scale, big-budget historical adventure, which champions the Spanish Empire’s last stand in The Philippines in 1898 by 50 patriots in a remote jungle village.
The feature film directing debut of Salvador Calvo, this is a valiant tale of bravery and utter fortitude as these Spanish ‘soldiers’ barricade themselves in a church for close to a year while suffering all manner of misery and illness, as well as the continual onslaught of the country’s native Tagalogs.
