With “kuwentuhan,” the Tagalog word for “sharing stories,” the audience has the opportunity to relate to a new perspective, affirm values for themselves, and reflect on personal experiences. From family birthday parties, to workplace anxieties, to beauty pageants; these films reveal the diverse threads that connect us. — Eseel Borlasa
