ANIMATED FEED: LAKAS NG LAHI
Lakas ng Lahi ("Blood Compact") - Filipino Animated Short Film from Arnold Arre on Vimeo.
It has been said that a fighter fights for himself but a warrior fights for his people. Three Filipino warriors fought against the oppression of the Spanish regime in the late 19th century. They come from different backgrounds- a man from a line of chieftains conquered centuries ago; a woman with the conqueror's blood in her veins rejected by her family of privilege; and a young man from a land across the sea fighting for his new home. Now the three find themselves in a new time. A time where the Philippines is a free nation. A time when the Philippines is as enslaved as ever. Their eyes have seen oppression. They still see it and they act in the only way they can. They fight.

Between the Bars is a short film I made on my spare time, for the eponym song composed by Elliott Smith, who’s music I completely felt in love with. The narration is freely inspired by Smith’s melancholic landscape and soft spoken voice.
