As moving pictures were captivating audiences all over the world in the 1920s, Jose Maria Rivera wrote this hilarious play depicting characters in a Filipino society who love to be entertained by cinema.
"Marami ang naaliw sa paglaganap ng cinema noon panahong 1920s. Dito sinulat ni Jose Maria Rivera ang kangyang obra na isang nakakatuwang dulang nagpapakita ng mga iba't ibang tao sa lipunan na mahilig manood ng cine."

El Filibusterismo (The Subversive) also known by its alternative title, The Reign of Greed, is the second novel by Jose Rizal and the sequel to the more famous Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not).
"The novel's dark theme departs dramatically from the previous novel's hopeful and romantic atmosphere, signifying the character Ibarra's resort to solving his country's issues through violent means, after his previous attempt at reforming the country's system have made no effect and seemed impossible with the attitudes of the Spaniards towards the Filipinos. The novel, along with its predecessor, was banned in some parts of the Philippines as a result of their portrayals of the Spanish government's abuse and corruption. These novels along with Rizal's involvement in organizations that aim to address and reform the Spanish system and its issues led to Rizal's exile to Dapitan and eventual execution." (Wikipedia)
