The Philippines has a pretty crazy history that includes Spanish colonization (for 333 years!!!), American colonization, and Japanese colonization. If you think about it, since 1565, the Philippines really hasn’t had a whole lot of time, well, being the Philippines. Needless to say, as it is with every year, the 112th Philippine Independence Day is definitely something to celebrate. Here are some of the events happening around Vancouver this month in honour of “Flip Day”:

JUNE 4-6

DUKOT (Desaparecido) – Movie & Forum

DUKOT (Desaparecidos), a film about the worsening human-rights situation in the Philippines, screens in Vancouver on June 3 and 4 at UBC Robson Square and on June 6 at the Vancouver Public Library, Alma Vandusen & Peter McKay room on 350 West Georgia, Vancouver. DUKOT is based on true stories.

Tickets: $15. A public forum will follow each screening with special guests: Dennis Evangelista (producer), Boni Ilagan (scriptwriter), Allen Dizon (the lead actor) and Melissa Roxas, who survived her abduction and torture in the Philippines.
