Sakay, April's installment of the Monthly Movie Night and Discussion presented by Project Row Houses, tackles the serious subject of the Philippine-American war in the early 1900s and the revolutionary Macario Sakay. After the Nacionalista Party, which Sakay co-founded, failed to negotiate Philippine independence, many people took up arms and readied for a confrontation with the Americans. Sakay went a step further and declared himself president of the Tagalog Republic and led the resistance. Filmmaker Raymond Red, who previously won a Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, directed the powerful and insightful Sakay, which is only his second feature-length film. 7 p.m. 2521 Holman.
