MTRCB Chair Issued Statement Regarding the Film “Maid in Malacañang”

The controversial film directed by writer-director Darryl Yap has received the following comment from MTRCB chair Lala Sotto.

On August 3, the aforementioned film—which presents the Marcoses’ side before they were compelled to leave the Palace—was released in Cinemas all around the country.

Even after this, there were still unfavorable comments posted online, especially considering that the same day also saw the premiere of the film Katips by Direk Vince Tanada. It was meant to serve as the “katapat” for the Maid in the Malacañang film.

According to a report from Manila Bulletin, MTRCB chair Lala Sotto issued a comment against this film produced by Viva Films on Thursday, one day following the film’s public launch.

Many people are aware that MiM was charged with attempting to rewrite history and the perception of the Marcoses.

“A PG classification means that a motion picture may contain themes that require parental supervision and guidance,” the explanation was provided as the agency acknowledged that it had watched the film.

The movie is about the Marcos family’s final 72 hours in the Palace in 1986, the MTRCB further emphasized. Additionally, it took mention of MiM “does not purport to be a documentary.”

As Direk Darryl disclosed the movie’s revenues after two days, it appears that audiences have given this favorable reviews.
