This Period Film Tells a Little-Known Part of Philippine History

Quezon's Game will school you like no history lesson ever did.

(Spot.ph) If your Araling Panlipunan classes weren't enough to satisfy your curiosity for Philippine history, you can turn to movies that tell the least-known parts of our rich and diverse past. Take for example former President Manuel Quezon's efforts at saving Jewish refugees in 1938, which is the story behind Quezon's Gamea highly acclaimed period film that will hit Philippine cinemas this May 29.

Directed by Matthew Rosen, the film stars Raymond Bagatsing as President Manuel Quezon, and Rachel Alejandro as his wife, Aurora. Both of whom, by the way, earned an Award of Exellence in Acting at the 2018 Cinema World Fest (Autumn Selection) in Canada for this film.

The film won 10 other awards in the same festival for lighting, color treatment, costume, and design (just to name a few) so you can expect lots of wonderful shots. Quezon's Game also bagged awards at the Indiefest Film Awards in California in 2018, and at the Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival in Texas this year.
