The Film

Kim Komenich's "Revolution Revisited" (2016) is a 70-minute documentary film that uses the filmmaker's 1980s still photographs as the starting point for a 30th anniversary look back at the final days of the Ferdinand Marcos regime in the Philippines. After locating more than twenty of the people he photographed in the 1980s, including Imelda Marcos, former President Fidel Ramos and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile as well as some of the people he photographed living in slums, Komenich asks, "What did the 1986 'People Power' Revolution ultimately mean?"
