More moviegoers are moved and applaud the movie “Quezon’s Game” as ABS-CBN and TFC bring the film to UAE and still screening in cinemas around the region.

World Group Founder Graham Cooke was “very fascinated” with the movie and added that “this is a well-produced film, and the acting was superb.”

While CEO of Evolution Media Production and Filipino-Emirati vlogger Fahed Alblooshi and contributor of “Celebrating Tolerance” book and member of the Jewish Council of the Emirates Jean Candiotte believe that the younger and next generations should watch the film.

“I think the new generation and the coming generation would learn more about history. Our ancestors and fathers always say that if you want to know the future you always have to go back to the past. It is a great movie to watch, it is something that will teach us a lot, and it is something more than just a movie,” said Fahed Alblooshi.

On the other hand, Jean Candiotte explained: “This story needs to be remembered and told to future and current generations. I strongly recommend that anyone and everyone see this film.”

Meanwhile, the overseas Filipinos who have seen “Quezon’s Game” in UAE cannot help but be prouder of their roots. Some of them even watched the film in groups, making the movie more impactful for them.

The film tells the story of how President Manuel L. Quezon and some key personalities in the 1930s have rescued refugees from the ghettos of Germany and Austria.

“The Filipinos will really feel very proud of President Quezon,” said JJ Jarder right after watching the film. She adds that “doon mo rin mapi-feel ‘yong independence na tinatamasa natin ngayon, we really have to give importance to this because people from the past really worked hard for this.”

On the other hand, Lou Parroco said, “I did not expect it will make me feel prouder being a Filipino as soon as I get out of this cinema. The film will make you feel proud to be a Filipino. Actually, it will make you happy being a Filipino. It is a big legacy of President Quezon that we should really be very proud of as Filipinos.”

While for Kim Mantua, the film taught him one important lesson: “Ang pagtulong ay para sa lahat. Wala ‘yan kung anong estado sa buhay, wala ‘yan sa posisyon, anumang lahi mo o relihiyon, ito ay para sa lahat.”

“Quezon’s Game” was produced by Star Cinema in association with iWant, and Kinetek, which stars Raymund Bagatsing, Rachel Alejandro, David Bianco, Billy Ray Gallion, James Paolelli, and Kate Alejandrino.

It is directed by Matthew Rosen, written by Janice Y. Perez and Dean Rosen which was based on the original story of Matthew Rosen and Lorena H. Rosen, under the Supervising Producer Marizel S. Martinez and Creative Producers Enrico C. Santos and John Paul E. Abellera. The film’s Executive Producers were Carlo L. Katigbak, Olivia M. Lamasan, Linggit Tan-Marasigan, and Lorena H. Rosen.
