Diego and His Brothers is a short film directed by Marty Lopez. It is based on events that had happened to his grandfather and his brothers during World War II in the Philippines.


Diego and His Brothers is a story loosely based on events surrounding three brothers during World War II in the Philippines. The film tells the story of Diego (Julijo Pisk), a young boy on a journey with his brothers to find an aircraft to take them away from the Japanese invasion. As the story unfolds, so too does the relationship between the brothers, as they try to overcome their own interior and exterior factors that keep them from getting to their destination.

The short film is a story of brotherhood, as well as a coming of age tale that follows the young protagonist, Diego. Diego and His Brothers stars Julijo Pisk, Enrique Gil, and Pica Lozano.[1]
