MGA ISTORYA NG PAG-ASA

This program is a collection of the ten finalists in the Istorya ng Pag-asa Film Festival 2019 under the Office of Vice President Leni Robredo, in partnership with Ayala Foundation and Film Development Council of the Philippines. These five-minute documentaries tell stories of hope, focusing on ordinary people – volunteers during the Marawi siege, a Tausug rapper who gives his social commentaries through rap, a Muslim woman running a unique tour of Manila, a street kid who becomes a policeman, a teacher who goes from one village to another to read stories to the young, a young man who does breakdancing to counter depression, two blind brothers who work in a coconut plantation to make a living, villagers who act to counter the effects of over-fishing, a former drug addict who runs art workshops, and an aging woman who learns to operate a still camera.
