Director/Producer: Michael Magnaye
Using a combination of Christmas icons, rituals and personal reflections, Magnaye takes a perceptive, candid look at the Philippines after living in the U.S. for five years. After “400 years in a convent and 50 years under Hollywood,” Philippine culture has become a spectacle of Spanish and U.S. colonial influences. This unique film features images of the current lives of Filipinos rarely seen in the U.S.
