DOCUMENTARY: When God Writes the Script

In documentary, God writes the script. Or so they say. Actual events dictate the unfolding of the plot of a documentary. And the documentary filmmaker serves as witness to commonplace or phenomenal events.  Outstanding documentaries showing great moments in Philippine history will be shown and analyzed by one of the country’s foremost documentary filmmakers and film historians.
