From fiercely patriotic General Luna to suave and young Goyo, local cinema has seen a spike in films telling the tales of the heroes who've made their mark in Philippine history. Quezon's Game, which revolves around a crucial time in the presidency of Manuel L. Quezon, came out in May 2019 at selected screens and if you missed the film, here's your chance to catch it: Cinema '76 is extending its run from June 26 to 29.
