IN THE CLAWS OF
A CENTURY WANTING (2017)
Sa Palad ng
Four families live in the seams of Manila’s busiest international port. In the hours of their ordinary days, the wealth of different nations pass them by in a stream of cargo entering and leaving Manila’s shores. Soon, the port gears up expansion, and panic starts. In the Claws of a Century Wanting is a filmic symphony of growing everyday violence in the aspiration for a global city.
