Celebrate Music and History with The Women of Malolos on June 11 and 12
A musical docu-drama? That's three things we like in one!
(SPOT.ph) In celebration of Indepence Day and in commemoration of Jose Rizal's historic letter to the women of Malolos, ANC will air The Women of Malolos on June 11 and 12 (8 p.m. to 9 p.m.).
The Women of Malolos is written by Nicanor Tiongson, featuring the music of Vincent De Jesus, and directed by the Dalena Sisters. It follows the lives of the 20 young women who fought for the chance to be educated (or at least learn the Spanish language) through words and letters. Their eventual success caused quite a stir and it prompted Marcelo H. Del Pilar to ping Jose Rizal to write them a letter.
Their names may not be familiar, but the simply bravery of their actions is worth remembering.
