113 minutes, 1987

Shot over eight months in 1987, this documentary chronicles the three points of a political triangle; the Legal left, the illegal (armed) Revolution, and the enemy which threatens them both - the armed Reactionary Right. Rebel priest Father Navaro and the communist New People's Army are fighting a revolution in the mountains, Kummander Dante, founder of the rebel army, is released from prison. He decides to give Mrs. Aquino's new democracy a chance and runs for senator. Radio DeeJay Jun Pala is the voice of the Anti-Communist Crusade. He fashions himself after Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels and broadcasts threats to use vigilante death squads on underground guerrillas, and leftwing activists alike. In the mountains the vigilantes are infiltrating Father Navaro's region. At the same time the election campaign brings Dante to Davao City, once an NPA stronghold, now firmly in the hands of death squads and Jun Pala. Father Navaro must also confront the vigilantes in a grim battle for hearts and minds when he leads a "People's Court" trial of a teenage guerrilla fighter accused of defecting to the government and informing on the revolutionaries. Dante returns to Manila and is defeated at the polls. Four weeks later, he is ambushed. With five bullets in his back, he survives. The film poses the key question facing the revolutionaries and the Filipino Left: Should the people's movement continue the guerrilla war, or do they dare enter legal politics and reveal the hidden faces of a revolution?
