MANILA, Philippines — In celebration of Rizal Day today, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), through its Sentro Rizal sites, will hold a series of showings for "Rizal’s Pen," a film by Nicolas B. Pichay.

Screening from December 29 until January 1, "Rizal’s Pen" is a short film about Patrick, who, while contending with life under quarantine, discovers the humanistic and liberating force of the works of Rizal.

Reading about Rizal’s life, Patrick realizes the genius in the man and — in Rizal's life as an exile — shadows that of Patrick ‘s own, whose mother is an overseas Filipino worker. Urian Best Actor 2021 Nanding Josef and Annie Luis, chanteuse, appear in special cameo roles.
