Then, the preacher approaches a lone, young man sitting on a bench. He convinces the young man to join his church, and attend a ceremony the next day.  This young man shows no interest.  The next day, however, the young man decides to join the service and tries to find said church.

The money they earn is used for their day to day school allowances and also their means of helping their father who work as a masseur at the night market. Few minutes later, Mac-Mac discovered that he lost some amount of money. The two brothers immediately traced their steps back hoping to find it.

Roxas Market turned into chaos but Mac-Mac was still waiting for his brother to return.Pagrara Sang Patipuron(Iloilo)Pagrara Sang Patipuron follows a group of indigenous Aeta women weaving artists in Nagpana, a sitio up in the mountains of Barotac Viejo, Iloilo. The film explores their artistic processes and products, reflecting negotiations between tradition and modernity. The Nagpana community is home to weaving artists that traditionally make crafts (purses and bags) that answer to a saturated market of woven crafts. This circle of women weaving artists are going beyond the products the Aeta are known for, by weaving jewelry with designs inspired by their environment and the people they live with. For these women, to weave from the center, to weave a circle, is to weave a life confronting realities of lack and insecurities brought about by poverty. With the help of two young artist entrepreneurs in the community, the women were empowered to explore their artistic imagination and extend the limits of their design process in the hope of transcending their present realities. The Aeta are considered the first inhabitants of the Philippine archipelago, but they are also one of the most marginalized indigenous peoples in the country.Mga Bitin(Cebu)About Mouthbrooder CichlidsSa Laing Kalibutan, Adunay Kita Karong Gabhiona(Cebu)One of the many possibilities when we create a world made of joy, pain, unresolved feelings, memorable moments, and a few buckets of beer.Leonora Kilat(Cebu)With her movie star grandma dead and her favorite movie theater dying, Shirley’s life mission is holding one last screening at the Colossus Theater of Philomena Singson’s legendary film, Leonora Kilat.
