Abstract

The article explores the Filipino film in terms of its stylistic devices, namely, surveillance footage and the long take, as well as a thematic examination of various social issues that are underlined by the overarching narrative arc of baby-snatching. These subthemes include the discrimination experienced by street children, media scrutiny, the sexual and verbal abuse toward female adolescents, and the moral dilemma of the baby’s kidnapping.
