Mateo Guez’s “Off World”. Shot on location in the Philippines, it is the story of Canadian man who returns to Manila for the first time since his childhood adoption.

It is here he discovers his roots lay in Smoky Mountain, one of the largest garbage dumps in the world and home to thousands of transients and scavengers.

His journey is the discovery of joy in the chaos and love in the desolation. You may join their Facebook Page.

Ibarra’s Historical Almanac is a short history of the Philippines, illuminated by pieces of literature specific to each episode in time. Highly subjective, it is a collection of texts that aims to challenge the way we learn post-colonial histories—through the eyes and words of those colonized. Finalist for the 2009 Salazar Student Awards for Best in Print Design.
