About the book: 
Directs incisive but at the same time admiring attention to H. R. Ocampo, Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal, and Emmanuel Garibay—four masters, the profound originality and complex visuality of which genre-specific efforts to parlay Philippine social dynamics into visual practices of engagement, struggle, and transcendence have produced for each of them a much-deserved and committed local following, even as they remain mostly overlooked, or misunderstood, by the rest of the world's critical communities.
