2.FILM SHOWING OF QUEZON’S GAME IN CHICAGO

 

Quezon’s Game is coming to Chicago starting Jan 24, the same week as the landmark 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. This is the remarkable true story of Holocaust heroism by Filipino President Manuel L. Quezon—who rescued as many imperiled Jews as Oskar Schindler at a time when most countries were turning their backs. Once forgotten to history, QUEZON’S GAME is an incredible (and timely) excavation of a little-known yet miraculous triumph, and the story of what just one man can accomplish when defeat isn’t an option. You won’t want to miss it - SAVE THE DATE!
 
Quezon’s Game features, among others, Chicago native Filipino-American actress Jennifer Blair-Bianco as Mamie Eisenhower, and her Midwest-educated husband, David Bianco as Col. Dwight D. Eisenhower. The movie is headlined by Raymond Bagatsing as Manuel L. Quezon and Rachel Alejandro as Aurora Quezon.
 
The film has won at least 20 awards in various international film festivals.
