    though it was one of the bloodiest military exchanges in the history of modern warfare, the Philippine-American War has been relegated to discussions between academics and historians. Using captivating re-eneactments and graphic historical photographs, "Memories of a Forgotten War" is an international collaboration among Filipino and American and media artists, filmed in the Philippines. Shot on location in Luzon and Mindanao, the film is emotionally raw and visually beautiful. Local amateur actors were used to re-enact scenes of war violence on locations where the original violence took place, allowing the Filipinos to act out their own history.
