An artists association opened a digital museum to remember one of the darkest periods in Philippine history on the 44th anniversary of the signing of Proclamation 1081, which opened the door for the imposition of Martial Law.
On September 21, a group of artists by the name of Dakila launched the website http://martiallaw.ph/in remembrance of Martial Law, which features a few shows.
An outline of "100 incidents, keepsakes, and memories on the routes leading to the Martial Law and the People Power Revolution" is one of them.
The beginning of the timeline depicts the 1965 release of the film "Iginuhit ng Tadhana,"which depicted the childhood years of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
Additionally, a whole movie named "Ang Mga Alingawngaw sa Panahon ng Pagpapasya"was posted online and is available to view through Sunday. The film, which was directed by Hector Barreto Calma, is about a little kid who grows up in a family with strong political beliefs while also experiencing the oppression of an authoritarian government.
The website also promises upcoming digital exhibitions, including one by prominent historian Xiao Chua, who has extensively investigated the Marcoses, which appears to be written for millennials. By the end of 2016, the display will be accessible.
It also included upcoming works for the following year, such as "(Re)constructing 1976," "Sounds of Martial Law," and "Pag-ibig sa Panahon ng Martial Law."

Conclusion

A hands-on museum was inaugurated in Quezon City in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution last February, and it left many tourists inconsolable as they experienced martial law firsthand.
With President Rodrigo Duterte permitting the late dictator's burial in the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Martial Law has once more become a contentious subject this year.
