“The Forgotten War” is an independent film produced by Smoke and Mirrors Entertainment about the Filipinos’ participation in the Korean War. It is directed by Carlo Cruz, the son of the Philippines’ Ambassador to Korea Luis Cruz.
The movie will have a premiere showing in Korea sponsored by the Philippine Embassy in support the 60th anniversary of Filipino-Korean relations. It will be held on April 12, Easter Sunday at the Tongsong Auditorium in Hyehwa-dong. There will be a mass at 11AM to be held before the showing. A special screening will also be held at the “Dal Orum” (Moon Hall) of the National Theatre of Korea at the foot of Mt. Nam (Namsan) on April 14 at 6PM.
The movie stars our “cabalen” Baron Geisler with support from Kyla Lapus, Lance Raymundo and Yul Servo. I’m hoping for a successful showing (and more information from the Philippine Embassy about the “One Philippines” event please!)
