Rhose, Where Do Your Dreams Go? is a documentary about Filipino migrant workers in Hong Kong, an offshoot project from his video animation Rhose based on the song of American singer-songwriter Paul Meredith. Shown at the Animahenasyon and funded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Rhose articulates migration issues whilst presenting the face of domesticity through one particular domestic helper.

As a filmmaker dedicated to produce dialogical films he perceives as commentaries to social concerns, he made his second film “As Told by the Butterflies“ to chronicle the Ladlad Partylist during the 2010 Philippine Elections in a documentary.
