In commemoration of our  national hero's -  José Protacio Rizal birth month, internationally acclaimed filmmaker and author Nick Deocampo will trace the beginnings of Philippine cinema signalled by the first feature film on Rizal, and how the history of local cinema has been further enriched by films about him and his works. Deocampo's lecture "Rizal, Cinema and the Filipino Nation" is on June 30 (Saturday) from 2 to 4pm at the Lopez Museum in Ortigas, Pasig.
