Filipino Cinema’s Hope for Change - Sometimes you really have to ask yourself; is the change worth the price. Contemporary Filipino cinema had been asking that very question for the past few years. Realistic social dramas such as Manila Skies, The Arrival and The Mountain Thief, all portray individuals in varying states of stagnation, longing for a way out. We are told to leave our hometowns and seek our fortunes where is grass is greener. Homegrown innocence is often outmatched by urban competition. Although these films are nowhere near as graphic as the ones by fellow countryman, Brillante Mendoza, the overall effect of how reality hits the characters is startling....   [tags: Film Review] 853 words

There was very little in a way of immediate economic interest to make our country of special concern to Americans by the time the Spanish-American War brought Commodore George Dewey's fleet to Manila Harbor to do battle with the Spanish flotilla on the night of April 30 and the morning of May 1, 1898.2 The Spanish-American War of 1898 provided the opportunity for Filipinos to get rid themselves of Spanish rule....   [tags: Papers] 837 words

He reasons that we are all given the same basic biological "tools" at birth, so it should follow then, that we should all behave in similar ways. But, because of "culture", defined as "the total life way of a people", we do not react to similar situations in exactly the same way.
