Four families live in the seams of Manila's busiest international port. In the hours of their ordinary days, they hear and see the wealth of different nations passing them by, leaving and entering Manila's shores. Soon, the port expands and panic starts. In the Claws of a Century Wanting is a filmic symphony of increasing everyday violence in the aspiration for a global city.
With an introduction by Richard Bolisay (University of the Philippines).
