The LEGACY of a HERO
“lagi ninyong pakatandaan, na ang kadahilanan ng ating pagbuwis ng buhay ay upang makamit ang matagal na nating minimithing kalayaan mula sa paglustay at pagka-alipin.” Gat Andres Bonifacio

Andres Bonifacio, known as the “Ama ng Katipunan”, had a rebirth with one of the famous indie actor, Alfred Vargas. Alfred Vargas portrayed Andres' life in the film entitled “SUPREMO”. This film enables the Filipinos to realize how much pain Andres' suffered and how much he sacrificed just for us to get the freedom that we're enjoying today.

Andres Bonifacio y de Castro was named after St. Andrew, the patron saint of Manila. He's the eldest of the 6 children of his parents and became the mother and the father to his siblings when his parents died because of Tuberculosis. He's looking for equality and peaceful reform for the Philippines. Supremo shows a lot of hopes. Hopes for the country and hopes for its' countrymen. It is truly undeniable that Andres Bonifacio is a hero. He is a son, a husband, a sibling and a leader. He had experience many challenges in his courageous life. He's a very great leader for his alliance. He never give up on fights. Even they are unequipped, he leads his men to fight for the freedom against the Spaniards. This film, Supremo, also became the eye-opener for us Filipinos that even your friends can betray you. Just like other happenings nowadays. In the latter part of the film, when Andres Bonifacio was killed, I'm confused because according to some historian, Andres was shot as what his brother, Procopio, experienced. But some says that Andres was stabbed to death, just like what was portrayed in the film.

I have this question in mind, why we lesser-recognized the heroism of Andres Bonifacio given the fact that he had sacrificed a lot for our country? Why is it that he never had the justice?
By the help of this film, Supremo, I'm hoping that Filipinos must now be more curious about the past because it is surely a reflection or a part of the present and the future.
Andres Bonifacio, The Supremo, is overly a nationalistic enmity hero of all times.
