Hey you! Halikana dito!  I'm raising production funds for my documentary JEEPNEY. Visualizing the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines, this feature-length documentary follows the journey of the jeepney—a military relic turned hot-rod mass-transit vehicle—and its drivers and passengers as they head towards an uncertain future. Vignettes of conversations and stories from drivers, passengers and policy makers show the jeepney’s evolution from an object of war to a symbol of the country’s repeatedly suppressed indigenous arts. But economic challenges may point to the end of the road for the jeepney, and may relocate millions of families from the mountains to overcrowded slums. Principal photography for JEEPNEY will run from mid-August through November 2011, with a release date anticipated for summer 2012.The money is going towards the 2-woman crew's cost of living for three months in the Philippines, jeepney fare and feasts of gratitude for our participants.  Thanks so much for checking us out, and keep in touch at www.jeepneymovie.com
