In Focus: Sinag Maynila 2020 Entry ‘Walang Kasarian ang Digmang Bayan’
“Sapagkat ang sining ay hindi sapat sa pangangailangan ng sambayanan.”
Walang Kasarian ang Digmang Bayan (The Revolution Knows No Gender) chronicles the journey of filmmaker, Paolo, played by Oliver Aquino, from being an activist to becoming a revoulutionary fighter. As Paolo goes through his life, he takes us with him to the current social and political situations plaguing the country. Like his countrymen, Paolo, becomes a victim, not only of the repressive and oppressive government, but of the current system of production. As he reflects on his life, he becomes a child, a kin, an artist, and eventually, a fighter of the revolutionary movement.
Written and directed by Joselito Altajeros, Walang Kasarian ang Digmang Bayan also features Sandino Martin, Arnold Reyes, Rita Avila, Ruby Ruiz, Iana Bernardez, Manu Garcia, and other artists.
