Using the body of works of Filipino filmmaker Lino Brocka (1939-1991), Rolando B. Tolentino's book examines the relations between cinema, cultural politics, and transnationalism in the Philippines. It analyzes issues of national and Third World cinemas, as problematized in Philippine cinema. Using the tropes of the city, family, body, and sexuality, the book explores the junctures in which the nation is contested.
