Wazzup Pilipinas!

This special video contains some highlights and interviews taken during Discovery Channel's special advance screening of the People Power documentary dubbed as People Power: 30 Years On" held on February 23, 2016 at the Quezon City Museum.

The production is from Discovery Networks Asia Pacific's Executve Producer Emile Guertin, which is an updated version of the work of Sally Bellosillo. According to Sally, this was her thesis back then which Discovery Channel enhanced for a special documentary.

One of the insights she had when making the film was "It is my hope that, that the work I do will inspire people to be better, to dream big and for young aspiring young filmmakers to go and live out this insane journey. And in my own little way help contribute to building the character of the youth who will one day take over in running this country."
Additional commentaries from Fil-Am host Trey Farley and interviews with the Aquino sisters, were included in the documentary. Trey adds narration and presenter-led links and also shares his own recollections of his experiences as a boy during those years. He visit key locations in Manila significant to the story.

Also included in the documentary are interviews with other prominent individuals like Fidel V. Ramos, Agapito "Butz" Aquino, Imelda Romuladez Marcos, the late Corazon Aquino, Sen. Aquilino Pimentel, Sen. Francisco "Kit" Tatad, Bishop Soc Villegas, the kate Fr. James Reuter, Sister Sarah Manapol, General Vic Batac, Col. Red Kapunan, Manuel Quezon III, Cheche Lazaro, Prof. Luis Teodoro, the late June Keithley and Sen. Gringo Honasan.

Aside from our interview with Vice presidential candidate Gregorio "Gringo" Honasan, Wazzup Pilipinas has special interviews with Jacqueline Suzanne "Jackie" Mendez Aquino - the daughter of Agapito "Butz" Aquino, MTRCB Chairman Eugenio "Toto" Villareal, Quezon City Vice Mayor Ma Josefina "Joy" Belmonte-Alimurung more popularly known as Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, Emile Guertin - Discovery Channel Executive Producer for "People Power: 30 Years On," and Sister Marie Sarah Manapol, SPC who worked with Fr. James Bertram Reuter.

Everyone shared with me their insights about the EDSA Revolution. This is a great source of information and an opportunity to reflect on what transpired 30 years ago, and how relevant it is now and for the years to come.

During the press conference, Vice Presidential candidate Grrgorio "Gringo" Honasan and the otehr officers said they have no regrets about what they did during 1986, but some of them did mention that the outcome they have hoped for were not entirely achieved. But nevertheless, as what the other interviewees has shared, the freedom of the press, and every other individual's freedom to share their opinions, is something we are enjoying right now and is already something worthwhile of all the effort they did back then.
