Baler (film) Wikipedia
In 1898, a band of Spanish soldiers heroically defended Baler (which was later made the provincial capital of Aurora in 1951) against Filipino revolutionary forces for 337 long and gruelling days. This battle, now known as the Siege of Baler, is the setting of a forbidden love between a mestizo soldier (Jericho Rosales) and a native Filipina (Anne Curtis) who lived at the end of the 19th century.
Baler has been available on original CD and DVD since March 17, 2009.
Baler had a special screening at the 2nd San Joaquin International Film Festival, on May 19, 2009 in Stockton, California.Anne Curtis – Feliza Reyes
