Ferdinand Marcos

Katips the film

Mariza Sollano talks about a new film portraying the lives and tribulations of student activists during martial law in the Philippines, which will be screening around the country in October.

The burial of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery (Libingan ng mga Bayani — LNMB) was hurriedly and secretively carried out, with military-style logistical support.

Marcos ruled the Philippines from 1965 until he was overthrown in the Peoples Power EDSA Uprising of 1986. He died in exile in the US three years later.
