27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Child of Manila
director: Dange Desembrana, Emmanuel Dadivas
original title: Anak Maynila
running time: 6 min.
synopsisA desperate woman, clutching a baby in the streets of Manila at night, represents a symbol of poverty plaguing the city. A stifling social drama combines live action with animation and brings the animated characters to life in the most impressive way; thus unfolding a more positive alternative to the story. Christian motives bring forth the message of hope, faith and a better world.
