The CCP Arthouse Cinema salutes the Filipino workers in this month’s film offerings, slated from May 14 to 21 via the CCP Vimeo Channel. Watch selected films and documentaries from Gawad Alternatibo which mirror the daily plight of Filipino workers, our modern day heroes who serve as the foundation of our nation. Take a peek into the lives of factory workers in Jon Red’s Ang Pabrika. In the 10-minute film, for Juaniyo and the rest of the workers, the factory is their life, home and the world.
Directed by Cha Escala and Emerald Hidalgo, “Pasko ni Intoy (Intoy's Christmas)” is a 30-minute video documentary that portrays the bitter-sweet Christmas of a child-laborer in a remote, swampy community in Leyte.
To watch the films for free, go to vimeo.com/ondemand/ccparthousecinema and use the promo code LABOR. The films on Vimeo on Showcase page will only be accessible on May 14, 3pm until May 21, 2021.
