Item description for Acquiring Eyes: Philippine Visuality, Nationalist Struggle, and the World-Media System by Jonathan Beller...
"Acquiring Eyes" directs incisive but at the same time admiring attention to H. R. Ocampo, Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal, and Emmanuel Garibay - four masters, the original and complex visuality of whose genre-specific efforts to parlay Philippine social dynamics into visual practices of engagement, struggle, and transcendence have produced for each of them a much-deserved and committed local following.
