Sakay is a historical film released in 1993. It is a dramatization of the life of Macario Sakay, a Filipino revolutionary general who fought against the Americans during the Philippine-American War, which ended on 23 March 1901 with the capture of General Emilio Aguinaldo. The film depicts the stronghold of Sakay and the members of his anti-colonial organization, the Tagalog Republic (in Filipino: Republika ng Katagalugan). Upon the capture of Aguinaldo, Sakay continues the fight for independence from the American government. Ultimately, he and his men are overwhelmed by the American forces.

The film was directed by Raymond Red, a leading Filipino indie/alternative director. He is said to have been displeased with how the film turned out, due to interference from the producers.
