Later in 1919, the very first Filipino movie Dalagang Bukid (Country Maiden) by José Nepomuceno was screened. During the1920-1940s a number of Filipino films were produced. After The Second World War a hungry audience received a huge list of Filipino movies with patriotic themes. The 1950s was the Golden Era for Philippines movies. Over 350 films were made annually. But in the 1970s and the 1980s President Ferdinand Marcos injected a censorship. Despite of censorship the list of new Filipino movies was quite large. Such directors as Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal, Celso Ad Castillo, Mike de León, Peque Gallaga, Kidlat Tahimik produced Philippines films which were critically acclaimed in the world.
