The Many Faces of Dr. José P. Rizal

Various representations of Dr. José P. Rizal (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896), a Filipino polymath, nationalist and the most prominent
advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. Considered as "The Pride of the Malay Race", the Philippines' national
hero was executed by a Spanish colonial firing squad on December 30, 1896. He spent his final days incarcerated as an 'enemy of the state'

I highly recommend that you view the award-winning "José Rizal" movie (in Tagalog, with English subtitles) as directed by Marilou Diaz-Abaya http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Rizal_(film) to learn more about the man behind the face. Back in the 1970's, there was a big buzz about plans to make a hollywood movie for international release on the life and times of Rizal starring Andy Garcia. I wonder what became of THAT project?
