DepEd Advisory With Regards To “Ang Larawan”, The Movie Musical

The Department of Education (DepEd) has released an advisory with regards to the Filipino movie titled Ang Larawan, an adaptation of a musical which in itself was based on a Nick Joaquin play. According to the advisory, there’s great value in the movie especially for teachers of English, Philippine Literature, Sibika at Kultura, and Araling Panlipunan.

Set in a period before the onset of the Second World War, Ang Larawan tells the story of a well-known painter and his children. Thrown in for good measure is the character of a boarder taken in for extra income by the painter’s daughters. Below is the advisory released by DepEd about the movie.
