Set in Manila, during World War II, and drawn from the long tradition of Philippine folklore, legends, and Indigenous spirituality, HILOT weaves the tangible with the intangible to tell a story of unexpected bonds formed during cataclysmic change. Written by Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, and directed by Jasmine Chen, this interdisciplinary story explores the social and political consequences of war and occupation in the Philippines and its impact through generations.
