About the book:
This book is the result of three years of research at the Cebuano Studies Center at the University of San Carlos, Cebu and is a collaborative project of two authors who wish to fill a certain gap in the history of cinema. The project is not a total history of cinema in Cebu, but rather addresses the two productive periods that correspond roughly to the 1950s and the 1970s. Further, it is about the cinema in Cebu made during what is more or less a classical mode of film production, namely the films that emerge on video and digital formats are not treated here.
