Set your alarm clocks. TBA Studios’ Heneral Luna will start streaming on YouTube for free tonight at 9 p.m. to kick off your long weekend. 

It’s been five years since the historical epic was released, but it's still relevant to this day. The rerelease will serve as a good reminder of the vision our forefathers had for the Philippines in this time of pandemic and political turmoil. 

Following the events of the Philippine-American War through the lens of General Antonio Luna, the film was a huge success, especially with the youth, as the cinematography, writing, and acting connected us to Philippine history in a way textbooks rarely do. However, some critics called out the film for romanticizing strongmen

It might do us good to rewatch the film with new eyes in a different era, this time with a pandemic instead of an election troubling our present. So here's the YouTube link where you can catch the stream later tonight.
