Cinema Centenario has unveiled Dokyu Power, a film festival that will screen thought-provoking and eye-opening documentaries. Available to screen for free on MOOV, Cinema Centenario’s streaming service, the films highlight the importance of coming together and speaking truth to power.
Dokyu Power debuts with the banner message: “Kwento natin ‘to.” (This is our story.)
The festival kicks off with a couple of screenings. One for Lauren Greenfield’s The Kingmaker, a docu that sheds light on former first lady, Imelda Marcos, and her dealings at the height of her late husband and dictator, Ferdinand Marcos. And the other for Augie Rivera’s Isang Harding Papel, A Martial Law Musical as filmed by director, Nor Domingo.
A panel commemorating the 36th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution asks the hard question: “May power pa ba ang people?” (Do people still have power?). It’s moderated by journalist Ces Drilon and joined with Drosi Nuval, Andy Bautista, John Nery, and Nick Deocampo.
