The Indiependent Collective's First Short Film, Iska!
MAYA Film Production, in partnership with The Indiependent Collective, brings to you this short film entitled ISKA. Sofia, the main character, is a local from Bicol who moved to Manila to take the chance to study at a university with a full scholarship, discovering the fun and dark side of living in the city as an iskolar ng bayan. This film shows how hard life can be for a person who is willing to take the risk of moving into the city to study and reach for her dreams not just for herself, but also for her family. It also shows the social classification of Filipino that affects the lives of everyone especially those who belong to lower to poor. It is really hard for them to pursue their dreams because poverty can now be inherited in the present. We cannot blame people for being poor for the rest of their life because when we do not know exactly how hard it was for them to survive a day. That all we have to do is understand and extend our help to them as much as we can.
