The Spirit of Togetherness

Streaming Video - 2005
Rate this:
Infused with the concept of bayanihan, or "spirit of togetherness," this program presents encouraging stories of teamwork and activism in the Philippines. It travels through Manila's bustling Quiapo Market, where commerce thrives in many forms-in contrast to the sprawling Payatas garbage dump outside the city, where a group of mothers have transcended scavenger subsistence, creating a community center with educational and hygienic services. Efforts to preserve the ancient and spectacular Banaue rice terraces are also presented in this astonishing visual record of resourceful, cooperative, and forward-looking accomplishments.
