Films from a “Lost” Cinema: A Brief History of Cebuano Films

Monograph published in 2005

Cebuano FilmsA monograph on the history of a cinema that grew independently outside the Manila-based movie industry. In this first-ever writing of Cebuano film history, Nick Deocampo adds into the country’s film narrative this “forgotten” film history that has been consigned as a “regional” cinema. Its re-appraisal may, however, challenge the very notion of what constitutes the country’s “national” film history.
