Lino Brocka is said to be the Philippines' greatest filmmaker, his film "Manila in the Claws of Light" is listed among the 1001 Films to See Before You Die.
Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth are true stories of Filipinos from all walks of life who chose to make a difference. There are currently 24 titles in this inspirational series.
ALEXINE: I read this entire series in one sitting and it was invigorating! These aren't the usual heroic stories you read online, this is a meatier selection which won't get the same viral interest. I highly recommend the entire series for the family.
