College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, 
University of the Philippines-Diliman

For years, Roger has depended on his bicycle to go to his place of work in Metro Manila, and from there to safely pedal his way back home to his family in the outskirts of the city. "Kadena" chronicles how Roger moves along and lives through the monstrous sprawl that is Metro Manila--from the grunts of its monumental traffic jams to the glitzy hiss of its malls and skyscrapers. This is Roger on how the city has changed before his eyes, on how the desperate have tried to turn it into a place of refuge and the poor aspired for resilience amid its unending squalor. "Kadena" is about two lives on the road chained to each other: that of the city and Roger's.

“Kadena” will be screened for free and open to the public on 22 August 2014 (Friday) from 2:30 to 5:00 PM at Room PH 400, Palma Hall, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, University of the Philippines-Diliman.

A brief forum with the documentary’s production team will also be held after the screening.

"Kadena" is a production of the University of the Philippines Third World Studies Center (TWSC), in partnership with the Department of Political Science of the Université de Montréal (UdM) under the Student for Development project. Since 2011, undergraduate students from the UdM and interns from TWSC have collaborated to make short documentaries on a particular theme. "Kadena" is a creative exploration of the theme urban transformation with Jeremy Agsawa as director of photography, Jesse Rey Baban as editor, François RD (Robert-Durand) as writer, and Alexandre Marcou as director.
