Long Summer Days

I was introduced to the Philippines by the work of Tony Meloto, founder of Gawad Kalinga, a poverty alleviation and nation-building movement. As of 2017, over 2500 villlages have risen up from the dirt, build by the people, for the people; successfully transforming slums into peaceful and productive communities. With this short film I set out to capture scenes of everyday life at two of those communities: the GK Enchanted Farm and GK Village A.B. Bernard.
