In his second year in Cinemalaya shorts, Glenn Barit creates another film that calls more attention to its form than its content. In Nangungupahan, Glenn translates into cinema the ability of a space (such as an apartment room) to transcend time. In his depiction, Glenn captures on screen the abstract notions of nostalgia, permanence and transition, and the cause-and-effect nature of time and space.
