Life is a big show.

For ten long years now, Victor, a native in San Pedro Cutud, San Fernando, Pampanga, religiously offers himself to be nailed on the cross every Holy Week. Like other people, this has been his longtime panata (Sacrifice) for he believes that God will forgive him from all his sins and grant all his petitions after crucifying himself on the cross. But this film will show you the glaring realities of faith and beliefs and how Filipinos and foreigners embrace the tradition of Semana Santa (Holy Week) as an attraction to this town. This film will leave you questions on your own faith as well as Victors belief. Is he doing a divine sacrifice? Or is it just a part of his lifes big show?

Heneral Rizal

Director: Chuck Gutierrez

22 minutes | PG

Heneral Rizal uncovers the story of Paciano Rizal, usually regarded as the ever-supportive elder brother of the Filipino National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. Unknown to many, Paciano was a proficient general who fought the colonizers, together with Andres Bonifacio and Emilio Jacinto. He was instrumental in liberating Calamba during the Philippine Revolution.

Featuring a powerful performance by Tanghalang Pilipino Artistic Director Nanding Josef, Heneral Rizal will form part of TPs full-length stage production in 2021 aimed to shed new light in understanding nationalism and what it really means to be a Filipino.
