In this anthology of essays about Philippine cinema, geopolitics takes off from the post -- World War II detente foreign policy of the United States to illuminate issues of transparency of power and power relations. It lays bare the geopolitics of the visible in order to render the almost invisible working operation that makes both visibility and invisibility possible.
