With only a few weeks left until the May elections, efforts to correct history, dismantle historical distortion and continue building historical integrity have been more vital than ever before.
In the continued pursuit of historical truth and integrity, “The Kingmaker,” the controversial documentary film by critically acclaimed filmmaker Lauren Greenfield on the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos’ widow Imelda Marcos, will have its Tagalog-dubbed version on various streaming platforms such as Youtube and Vimeo, until May 9.
The Tagalized version of “The Kingmaker” is a collaborative effort of many overseas Filipino worker groups who want to address the massive efforts and tons of money to spread disinformation and muddle accuracy of many historical events perpetrated in these critical times leading up to the elections.
“‘The Kingmaker’ is a critical starting point for further discussion and research about martial law and the Marcoses. Primers and discussion guides on authoritarianism and disinformation will be made available at martiallaw.ph to help viewers make clearer, better-informed decisions,” Dakila education director Darlene Ramos Gan added.
In partnership with Evergreen Pictures, the production behind “The Kingmaker,” Dakila through its Active Vista Center will also integrate subtitles in different dialects into the film, including Tagalog, Cebuano, Bikolano, Ilokano and Hiligaynon.
Interested audiences may watch the Tagalog-dubbed version on bit.ly/KingmakerPH where they can also access a discussion guide and primers to help facilitate meaningful discussions on this film and its topics.
