Philippine National Anthem Video in Filipino Sign Language

Watch this 1.24-minute video-dramatization of the Philippine National Anthem signed by deaf students using Filipino Sign Language. The nineteenth century costumes were used highlighting the country’s condition and uprising against colonial Spanish era. It has both Tagalog and English captions. The presentation was videotaped behind the picturesque mountains of San Mateo in Rizal province. It is a 6,000 sq. m. property where the future site of MCCID will be erected.

This activity was conceptualized by MCCID Faculty Sir Jefferson Cortez as part of his Filipino Sign Language class. Lucky McGill Paltep (the one holding the Philippine Flag), a 2nd year Diploma in Arts and Computer Design Technology (DACDT) deaf student choreographed the sequences. Maricris Siping did the sign language interpretation. Overall director was MCCID Deaf Coordinator Sir Ervin Reyes.
