The rest of the month chronicle traumatic dates in history — this month resurrects all the old ghosts. The tragedy of the bombing of New York City’s Twin Towers on September 11 here in the US and the horror years of martial law in the Philippines because of Marcos and his insatiable greed for power.
As we come to the 50th anniversary of the declaration of martial law by dictator Ferdinand Marcos — another film has been produced which features survivor stories of state-sponsored violence during these terrible years of death and destruction.
The documentary 11,103 is the recounting of thousands of names and their individual stories of how they overcame the trauma and fear of abuse they suffered from martial law abusers who tortured them.
More than 70,000 cases have been reviewed by the Human Rights Claim Board and the documents are archived at the Freedom Memorial Commission.
A special US advance screening is set for 11,103 on September 17, 2022, 4:00 p.m. at the Flexible Theater, Building 3 Cañada College 4200 Farm Hill Blvd., Redwood City California. The filmmakers will join in a Q&A session via zoom after the screening.
As we continue to tell these stories we hope the world is listening and remembers these survivors. #neveragain
