About GomBurZa Movie:

GomBurZa was produced under Jesuit Communications and MQuest Ventures, in collaboration of CMB Film Services. Pepe Diokno is the director, who was motivated by patriotism to create the film.

The film focuses on the rise of the secularization movement led by Roman Catholic priest Pedro Pelaez in the Spanish Philippines as well as the struggles and execution of the eponymous trio priest, the Gomburza. This was his first historical film.

The production team said they gave focus on historical accuracy for GomBurZa. They coordinated with historians and the Jesuits in creating the film. Among them was Jesuit priest and Ateneo de Manila University professor René Javellana.

Director Diokno however added that they have to utilize some creative liberties to fill in the gaps, such as the portrayal of Francisco Zaldua a fourth priest who was killed alongside the Gomburza whose role in history is still debated.

GomBurZa will premiere in cinemas in the Philippines on December 25, 2023, as one of the official entries of the 2023 Metro Manila Film Festival.
