“U-2” uncovers the story of young and brave Filipinos during World War II. PMA and ROTC college students, who were bumped off from the transport trucks bound for the frontlines of Bataan, blatantly organized one of the earliest guerrilla resistance groups in the Philippines, stole firearms from under the noses of the Japanese, and put the fate of the country into their own hands. The band of brothers became known as the Hunters ROTC Guerrillas.
Executive producer and publisher, Lucky Guillermo, introduced the 52-minute movie and encouraged support for the 2nd International Film Festival 2018 in Southern California New York City and Honolulu, Hawaii, to take place in October as the revered month for the Filipino American History Month.
The young Bani Logrono, a multi-awarded film maker, directed the movie and noted that “in a world where responsibility and courage are needed more than ever before, Unsurrendered 2 challenges the youth of today to rise to the occasion, as did our WWII heroes.”
