Philippine Cinematic Art
Part of the Fifty Shades of Philippine Art series, this book is an introduction to the aesthetic, political, historical, and social context of Philippine cinema. "It is an addition to the body of critical writing that not only examines the complex evolution of the form, but locates the individuals and organizations that have helped define the industry through the years.

Authors include Andrea L. Peterson, Gaspar A. Vibal, Christopher A. Datol, and Nicanor C. Lajom.
