Revolutions Happen Like Refrains in a Song

Director: Nick Deocampo

This documentary is Nick Deocampo’s love song about the historical struggle of the Filipino people that led to the 1986 People Power Revolution. Both social and historical, as well as personal, the film captures the life of Filipinos in the clutches of poverty, prostitution, and dissent, intertwined with the story of the transvestite Oliver, and the filmmaker’s own personal experiences and history. 

A historical and social view of Filipino life caught in the throes of poverty, prostitution, and revolutionary change. It is a chronicle of the filmmaker's personal history as it intersects with the social upheaval of the past twenty years climaxing in the 1986 People's Power Revolution.

In the Middle of the Night

Director: Bryan Kristoffer Brazil

29 minutes

In the Middle of the Night is a documentary highlighting President Duterte’s infamous War on Drugs. Awarded first prize during the 2017 Gawad Alternatibo, this documentary follows different yet similar cases of brutal killings in the Philippines that have become so rampant and documents the aftermath. The lives that were rendered insignificant. The love lost. The injustice, the fear, the pain and the struggles of the families left behind by the “war”.
