“My story could be your story. As Filipinos, it must be our story.”
Dado Banatao was born the son of a farmer in the rural Philippines. He grew up in poverty, without shoes or access to electricity.
In the 1980s, Dado's innovations helped usher in the era of the personal computer. He pioneered the PC chipset and graphics acceleration architecture that continue to be two of the foundation technologies in every PC today. Along the way, Dado founded three companies: S3, Chips & Technologies and Mostron.
This is his story, filmed in March of this year on location in Cagayan, Cebu and Manila.
