Shooting set for docu on Salamat Hashim

Gutierez Mangansakan II, a young Moro film maker, is set to start shooting a documentary film that features the life of the late Salamat Hashim, according to the MILF website Saturday. Hashim was chair of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

The filmmaker is said to be related by affinity to the Moro rebel group leader. Mangansakan will use interviews with family members, comrades, media, and scholars on Mindanao, the website said.

The website said the film starts from Hashim’s youth in Pagalungan, Maguindanao to his legacy to the Bangsamoro people.

It also include his study in Egypt, his role in the Moro National Liberation Front, the founding of the MILF, and the wars in Mindanao.

The website quoted Mangansakan as saying the documentary would not only unlock the leader’s personality but provide a better understanding of him side by side with the social and ideological impact of the MILF.

He added that Hashim, who died in 2003, still constinues to inspire how to become a better Muslim.
