Cavite - A True Filipino Film

Emilio Aguinaldo's House in CAVITE.

Cavite is a superb, thrilling, captivating film about religion, relationship and being a Filipino.

I saw my beloved country thru the eyes of Ian Gamazon and Neill Dela Llana that the Filipinos are still suffering from poverty and oppression.

I haven't been home for 11 years but I know our land is still divided in politics, religion and the rich and poor.

A sea of trash can create food for a day and makes life easier for Filipinos. The smile that hides the sadness can easily be forgotten.

A kid wearing a red and blue shirt eating micky d's on a corner of forgotten memories thinking about his future that it will never come true.

"our land is still divided in politics, religion and the rich and poor".

I hear all the time how things are getting worse. Life is harder and people are poorer. But then I see all the new development... the lifestyle in Makati, the new yuppies in the call centers, world class shopping malls and most telling to me... a larger percentage of the population with greater amounts of disposable income. Have we been down so long as a people that we don't recognize the winds of change?
