Watch Tao Po and be engaged
Let our conversations spark the future we desire!
So that the world will know what is happening in the Philippines and understand the human cost of our government’s war on drugs. At the same time, find a creative way to link this with human rights issues anywhere in the world. And with post-screening discussions (Talkbacks) scheduled for every country where the movie will be available to watch, the conversations about the issues will continue and hopefully, effect change.
As a critical component of the Film tour, the talkbacks sponsored by partner organizations in different parts of the world are intended to engage all who have viewed the film in safe and honest conversations. Insights, comments and questions become the springboard for exchanges of views and allow for perspectives, however different they may be, to enrich all those who participate. The hope is that the future that we all aspire may be sparked by our own conversations.— In December 2021, super-typhoon, Odette, severely devastated numerous areas in the Visayas region of the Philippines. Among them are communities in Negros Oriental and Cebu. CIRCA-Pintig will kick-off its 2022 Monthly Beat series with a virtual educational & fundraising event called Raising Voices: Stories from the Homefront / Climate Justice, on January 28th, 6 pm PT / 8 pm CT / 9 pm ET / Philippines Jan 29th 10am. The focus will be on the environmental crises in the Philippines and the need for solidarity and progressive action on Climate Justice.

Since its inception in November 2015, this festival has featured the best of short and feature films in contemporary cinema. By combining montages with narrative storytelling, Healing explores the isolation fostered by the pandemic, with particular attention to the paradoxical complexities of connection and disconnection created by healthcare systems and technological innovations. Healing | Healing Series Part 1 As vaccines became more accessible, we worked on our first film in over a year with an actor, a grateful surprise that we couldn’t have expected. Healing explores through montage and narrative internal feelings of emptiness and disconnection. Particularly, during the isolating times of the pandemic, where healthcare systems and technological innovations added paradoxical complexities of connection and disconnection. Additionally, as a therapist I have often wondered where the line is between the therapist and the patient or client? We hope that Healing can be a space for the viewer to discover their own possibilities of healing.
