Extended trailer for Ninoy Aquino & the Rise of People Power, which screened at the 2009 Hawaii International Film Festival.
An eyewitness account of dictatorship, assassination and revolution matching Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and opposition leader Senator Benigno 'Ninoy' Aquino Jr. in a power struggle that catches the United States in a diplomatic dilemma. Using an alleged communist plot to overthrow the government as an excuse, the president declares martial law and assumes dictatorial power. In the mass military roundup of government critics and political opponents, Aquino is the first to be arrested.
