KWENTONG PA[M]BAHAY (Finalist #16)
University of the Philippines - Los Baños (UPLB)

By the year 2010, the government aims that its bullet-train project
has already been implemented and is up and running. To make this
happen, one of their agenda is the demolition of houses beside the
railroad that traverses from Manila to Bicol. The said demolition has
started in Pandacan, Manila and is continuing in the provinces of
Laguna, Quezon and off to Bicol.

In Cabuyao, Laguna, some of the railroad houses had been demolished
before the year 2006 ended. The people were then relocated to another
site. Also, the people residing beside the railway in Los Baños and
San Pablo, Laguna have been receiving notices of relocation. This
video hopes to further motivate the urban poor living beside the
railroad to voice out their grievances for better relocation site and
to bargain with the government for better implementation of its
promised support.

Holy Cross of Davao College

With the severe problems we are facing right now, each of us plays an
essential role in our society and country. This documentary talks
about how children contribute something to their families and
community for survival. We often fail to notice what they're doing.
So, this is the chance to know the story behind that innocent smiles
and teary eyes.
