Memory of Forgetting (Kamias: Alaala ng Paglimot)

A pig is slaughtered with no regard to its pain. The scene then cuts to a series of vignettes spliced together to tell a poignant tale of the psyche of a young artist. He reveals his thoughts through a stream of questions, reminisces, musings and poetry, while the background shows choppy images of the typically chaotic and busy life in Quezon City. Kamias weaves scenes of the artist’s family and personal life with a strong, if not sad, narrative thread.
