| Celebration of Philippine Independence
20 years of freedom. 20 years of Philippine spirit. 20 years after the EDSA revolution.

The question is: What happened after these 20 years? Imahe Nasyon gives possible answers. This omnibus film takes us to the world of 20 award winning Filipino filmmakers. Each share their view of what has happen and what is about to happened to the Philippines after EDSA revolution. The films vary from different approaches. From the experimental piece of Lyle Sacris, to a taxi chasing short by Neil Daza, each short carry their own uniqueness. Personally, my favorite is Raymond Red's Camera Obscura. Taken from the first form of Film, it tells two possible stories. One is of a man peeping in a tiny hole, seeing the past; and another is of a young man seeing his future. The movie texture and look feel like it was treated by a painting. It has influences of the German Expressionistic movement and a bit of George Melies. But I can't say that the others were not in the same level. I like each short film. All were done with a high level of passion and nationalism.

Imahe Nasyon is a celebration our Independent, both as a Filmmaker and as a Filipino. It is also a celebration to the digital age. Almost all were shot with a Panasonic 24p, which surprise me because the quality of the shot were somewhat film like. Credits to Pelipula and VIVA films for putting together a monumental piece. It was not only is entertaining, but enlightening. This film is the EDSA Monument for Philippine Independent Films.
