“Orapronobis” (Fight for Us) is a 1989 film directed by Lino Brocka and written by Jose F. Lacaba. The film depicts the human rights violations and liberalism of the Aquino administration in support of “vigilantes” for the purpose of fighting communism.
“Orapronobis” was banned for commercial exhibition by the Philippine government because of its anti-militarization theme. The film however was previewed at the UP Film Center. Philip Salvador played the lead role of Jimmy Cordero, a priest and former rebel who became a political prisoner during Martial Law and was released right after the EDSA Revolution.
Here’s the english trailer of “Orapronobis” posted at Cannon Films’ YouTube channel.
