As Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral takes cinemas by storm, its Writer, Director, and Editor, Jerrold Tarog lets us in to the core of this film — revealing Gregorio Del Pilar’s personal battles as he leads Filipinos in fighting colonizers.

This is but a recurring theme of the trilogy — From the successful Heneral Luna, the recent Goyo, and the upcoming third installment of his historical trilogy on Manuel Quezon— veering away from hero-worship, and looking into the complexities and the humanity of each persona. He also tells us what makes his takes on Luna and Goyo different, and what weaves the films together.
