Sotto on the development of Philippine filmmaking from 1897 to 1960. It highlights the role of the "studio system" in catalyzing an art form that went through several technical and artistic innovations including the departure from the silent features to the "talkies" and later, the development of several film genres and the creative minds behind the production of these works.
