Katipunan is a short film that explores the undercurrents of history, memory, social responsibility, cynicism, heroism and love in the everyday lives of Filipino youths. It frames a hyperlink narrative focused on three main protagonists- an Atenean, a University of the Philippines Student Activist, and a blue collar worker, all in their early twenties, around the events before, immediately after, and a year after typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) hits Manila. The film also draws parallelisms between Filipino Youths and Contemporary Philippine Cinema, in examining their contributions to mass society in the everyday and in the grand scheme of things.
