The forthcoming film “Maid in Malacañang” is more about the Marcos family. Senator Imee Marcos authorized the project, which was handled by Viva Films’ Boss Vic del Rosario.

Eliza Romualdez-Valtos, the family’s archaeologist and historian, served as consultant and researcher to ensure that the film accurately depicted events at Malacanang during the family’s final three days in 1986.

Ella, who was born around 1986, stated something which drew the attention of the public online. She is familiar with how history was taught in school, and performing this role has opened her up to understanding the other side of history through this film.

Here’s what she said:

“History is like ts!smis. It is filtered and dagdag na rin, so, hindi natin alam what is the real history. Andoon na iyong idea, pero may mga bias talaga. As long as we’re here alive at may kanya-kanyang opinion, I respect everyone’s opinion.”

She didn’t say which period of history she was speaking to, but if she’s talking about the past in general, were the events that led to the democracy we currently have simply “tsismis”?

People on social media objected to her words when she made such a statement.
