SIYETE (A Short Film)



The film is about an old trolley driver (Tatang) who is new in this kind of job. At the start of his first day, he has lots of passengers. And one of his passengers is a young student (Buboy) who rides trolley everyday to school. Suddenly, Buboy starts to notice that Tatang is a newbie and is illiterate when it comes to money. Later on, Buboy becomes a regular passenger of Tatang’s trolley and he always finds time to review about money which also makes Tatang a regular listener.

In behalf of my teammates, I would like to thank the people who made this film possible. And of course, for those who supported and believed in this mini film.

The film actually tackles the social relevance of how can we help those illiterate people in our own little ways. How bout you? How can you help them?
