Description
Directed by Jerrold Tarog
This rousing historical epic tells the tragic story of the mercurial genius and the sad republic that would come to betray him.

Some consider General Antonio Luna the greatest military mind the Philippines ever saw, and the only hope the fledgling revolutionary army had against the American invaders. This rousing historical epic tells the tragic story of the mercurial genius and the sad republic that would come to betray him. Heneral Luna was the Philippines’ official 2016 submission to the Academy Awards, and one of the most popular independent films in the history of the country. (2015, 119 min., Tagalog with English subtitles)
