Years When I Was a Child Outside

Taon noong ako’y anak sa labas

Years When I Was a Child Outside is a meta-film following Torres’ perspective as the son of best-selling self-help author Rodolfo Torres, whose instructional books and tapes made in early 1980s Philippines aimed to ‘help raise brighter children’. Upon learning of his father’s secret family, the narrator embarks on a quest to create order from this chaos.
