Event description

Many things stay in the mind long after you have watched Joel Lamangan’s Oras de Peligro.

It has news reels of the 1986 People Power which got world-wide attention for a “bloodless revolution.”

There is a historic footage of Juan Ponce Enrile in his younger years withdrawing support for the Marcoses along with the then equally younger Fidel Ramos.

You see the famous balcony scene of the Marcoses holding fort before the fateful hour when a plane would transport them to Hawaii with enormous amount of their wealth that took more than a week for the Hawaii customs office to itemize.

For once you are reminded that the older Marcos is really determined to take over as permanent president of the Republic of the Philippines after twenty years of the so-called New Society.

As the Senate proclaims Ferdinand Marcos as “the newly elected president of the Republic,” the story of a typical poor Filipino family unfolds.

The news reels slowly fade as you focus on jeepney driver (Allen Dizon) and his wife (Cherry Pie Picache).

They manage to raise good kids on top of trying to survive on meager wages.
