Umbilical Cord
A kaleidoscope of the filmmaker's impressions of current events from the Centennial commemoration to recent elections and their relationship to the past one hundred years of Philippine struggle. In a series of montages, the filmmaker asks people from the markets to malls questions about what a hero means, who their heroes/heroines are, what they think of the centennial celebration, and what they think the role of women is today. Within this contemporary context, bridging history to today, the filmmaker explores the absence of women in history from a more personal perspective, searching for the stories of her female ancestors--archival photographs depicting the Philippine Revolution, Philippine-American War, and images of society's heroes.
