As part of the year-long celebration in honor of the 200th Birth Anniversary of Melchora Aquino, the Quezon City Government screened a 30-minute documentary film entitled “Tandang Sora: Bayani ng Bayan” last September 1, 2012 at TriNoma, Cinemas 3 & 4.

This event, organized by the Tandang Sora Task Force headed by Vice Mayor Ma. Josefina G. Belmonte, was attended by Honorable Mayor Herbert M. Bautista, City & Barangay officials, descendants of Melchora Aquino and other dignitaries in the field of Education and Film Industry.

The program also features the performances of Camp Aguinaldo High School and San Francisco High School, who emerged as winners of the Tandang Sora Themed Sabayang Pagbigkas Competition initiated by the Division of City Schools and supported by the Quezon City Government last August 28, 2012.

This documentary was created to showcase the heroic values she exhibited during the revolution and to instill to the minds of our youth and residents of Quezon City, the life and achievements of the Grand Woman of the Revolution.

The City Mayor gladly congratulates the Tandang Sora Task Force for coming up with the said event. Even the descendants of Tandang Sora represented by Ms. Josephine Geronimo, wholeheartedly expressed her gratitude for commemorating Melchora Aquino’s 200th Birth Anniversary.

All participants in the said activity were provided with DVD copies of Tandang Sora: Bayani ng Bayan Documentary as well as Tandang Sora Booklet/Manual.
