I know Martial Law but only read it in books and based on stories of people who lived during this era. But what I noticed is that there are different point of views when it comes to Martial Law.

Just this year, an independent film entry in Cinemalaya made a brave move in creating a film that is based on the controversial past of this country. The movie was titled as "ML" short for Martial Law.
After having critically acclaimed and garnered an interesting nominations and awards, it was finally given a chance to be shown on the commercial big screen. Reaching more viewers to learn something about ML.   

The film is directed by Benedict Mique and brought to life by veteran actor Eddie Garcia, who plays the role of a retired Metrocom Colonel with a slight dementia who believes that he still lives in the Martial Law era. Together with the other newcomers in the film industry Tony Labrusca, who played the role of Carl who is a college student who learned about the realities of Martial Law from someone who lived in that era. Aside from Eddie Garcia and Tony Labrusca they are joined by Liane Valentino, Henz Villaraiz, Jojit Lorenzo, Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Chanel Latorre, and Chrome Cosio.

The film was nominated for Best Film, Best Editing and of course it earned Eddie Garcia the Best Actor award during the 2018 Cinemalaya.

Now ML will be shown nationwide on November 7.
