More than one hundred years ago, the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite, Philippines was a witness to one of the most crucial junctures in Philippine history—the declaration of a free Filipino nation. This national heritage site is a living reminder of the freedom that the Filipino people fought and longed for, and the monument of the successes that the country has achieved since then.
And in celebration of 117 years of Philippine Independence, a spectacular video-mapping show was projected on the Aguinaldo Shrine to retell the history of the Filipino people, from the arrival of Magellan to Philippine shores in 1521 to the liberation of the Filipino people in 1898. The show was on a special run from June 11 to 15, 2015.
The video mapping of the Aguinaldo Shrine is a project of the Philippine Department of Tourism through the initiative of the LGU of Kawit, Cavite and implemented by the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) and OptimumShow Philippines, Inc.
The project is also supported by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP).
