Veteran movie director and actor Manuel “Manny” Castaneda is calling all netizens, especially the anti-Marcos, to let the Marcoses tell their side of the story in his latest FB post.
Castaneda began the FB post by confessing that like many Filipinos, he knew very little what happened inside Malacanang at the height of the “people power revolution”.
Castaneda heard that the movie “Maid in Malacanang” by Darryl Yap is zeroing in on that particular time frame, how former President Ferdinand Marcos handled the situation and likewise members of the former first family under extreme pressure.
The veteran director mentioned how he find it funny that some anti-Marcos advocates are already so riled up when we have yet to watch the finish product to merit such adverse reactions. So agitated that some actors involved in the movie project have been attacked at a very personal level.
Castaneda took this opportunity urging the anti-Marcos advocates and the public in general to listen to the Marcos side of the story without biases. He said this is the chance we get to know more information and perhaps create a more comprehensive picture of the EDSA People Power.
Castaneda can’t help but ask what is it the anti-Marcos advocates are so angry and afraid of Darryl Yap’s movie?

Let us admit it. Up to this very day, we know very little of what happened inside Malacanang at the height of the “people power revolution”.
They say “Maid in Malacanang” focuses on that particular time frame inside the palace, how Pres Marcos handled the situation and the interaction among the members of the family under extreme pressure.
I am just so amused that some anti Marcos advocates are already so apprehensive and defensive when not much has been presented to us to merit such adverse reactions. It even has come to a point that they have attacked the actors involved in the project at a very personal level.
Removing all biases, I am more than eager to listen to their side of the story. It’s about time we get to know more information and maybe create a more detailed picture of the historical event.
So, lets give them the chance to speak.
Nagtataka lang ako kung bakit sobrang galit at parang natatakot ang mga anti Marcos sa project na ito.
May dapat ba silang katakutan?
