Moviemaking in the Philippines has perhaps never been more exciting than it is right now, partly because of the dynamic clash between a commercial movie sector that churns out entertainments full of violence and melodrama, and an independent community that makes often radical, nearly non-narrative films. In between these two extremes lies Ralston G. Jover’s superb film that blends terrific storytelling and docu-realism for an emotionally affecting account of young boys diving for metal scraps off the shore of Manila’s worst slum. Their discovery a large anchor appears to be the jackpot they’ve been dreaming of, but this is only the beginning of an adventure that may bring out the handkerchiefs. -Robert Koehler
