General Luna



My name is Joven Hernando, sir.


The commander's son?

I'm sorry to have kept you waiting.

Not at all, General.

I am honored to be allowed

to interview you.

This is for what again?

We're planning to publish a newsletter.

Like what you did with...

La Independencia.

Yes, sir.

We have to continue what you started

It's only fitting that our first

article should be

about you, General.

You Might end up with a novel, son.

Sit down.

What do you think?

My brother Juan designed this uniform.

I paid for it myself.

Our Army has limited funds but...

we must show our enemies

that we have a professional army.

Who sent these?

These are the new uniforms

from General Luna, sir.

What new uniforms?

We already have uniforms!

General Luna came up with a single

design to unify the whole army.

Why do I have to follow

that bastard's order?

The uniforms have President Aguinaldo's

approval, sir.

It's good that our uniforms finally

have one design.

It's a momentous task bringing together

a scattered nation, Joven.

Word is that the

Cabinet is about to

make a decision regarding

the Americans?

It's easier for the

earth to meet the sky

than for two Filipinos

to agree on anything!

Than for two Filipinos

to agree on anything!

Mister President!

This arguing is taking us nowhere.

The Americans are gathering

strength as we speak.

Let us attack the now while

they are few in numbers.

Even if we suffer large casualties,

we can drive the away

and take control of Manila.

Intramuros will be ours!

We have control over provinces!

We have forty thousand troops!

There are only three

thousand Americans,

We can easily drive them away.

I have sent Arguelles and Buencamino

as our Peace Commissioners

to talk with General Otis.

They are toying with us.

My informants tell me they are

expecting 7,000

heavily armed troops.

General Luna is right!

We must act now!

America is also an enemy of Spain

and enemies of my enemy

my allies shall be.

The Americans fought Spaniards in Cuba.

Did they invade Cuba?


They helped the Cubans

kick out the Spanish.

We have no reason to believe

they will not do the same here.

I say give peace between us a chance!

Well said, Senor Paterno.

This has to be a

concerned effort, Joven.

Everyone who came before us

gave their lives for Freedom.

If the Americans are targeting Spain,

why haven't they joined us

in our struggle?

Why are they stopping us from

storming Intramuros?

I agree with Senor Paterno.

Opt for peace.

You are blind.

Instead of sitting here all day,

we could be out among our people,

gathering arms,

digging trenches

and training them to fight.

Do not heed the sugar-coated

words of the Americans.

There is no room for naivete

in this Cabinet.

What about our businesses?

If we fight, the economy

will be in shambles.

How will we feed our families?

Business or freedom?

Country or family? Choose!

I know you.

You were with the Spanish

Civil government

and when things went bad for Spain,

you changed hats.

When things get

rough now, will you

start wearing stars and stripes?


Everyone here has his interests!

We're only human.

How can anyone talk of business

when we are all slaves

in our own country?

I love my country as much as you do.

For now, America is our ally.

For now, America is our ally.

They gave me their

assurances in Hong Kong.

They are dying to have

a foothold in Asia

to compete with other nations

who want to colonize us.

Let us wait for the Treaty

of Paris to be completed...

Do we have any

delegates in Paris?
