When I was a college student back in 2001, I thought...


My classmates thought it would be cool to see me act in a short film.


First of all, I was young and I would do everything to pass my Film course. Also, work hasn't dampened our spirits. Deep inside, each and every one of my classmates thought they are going to be the next Lino Brocka or Ishmael Bernal.

Anyway, I don't know how we came up with the narrative but it feels like I was portraying a dude who just drives to get his high. And I just drive to whatever the world takes me - from the northernmost Marikina Riverbanks area to the southernmost J. Nakpil Street - my character drives without direction and for some reason, driving and picking up hitchhikers is his jam.
