Founded in 2013, Artikulo Uno Productions is an independent film production company that works with inspired minds and fresh talent. Its first offering, Heneral Luna, is the highest grossing Filipino independent film of all time, spending nine weeks in the cinemas. The name “Artikulo Uno” is inspired by the famous threat uttered by General Antonio Luna who demanded his forces to be in the best shape or be penalized by death.
