featuring Rona Figueroa. A beautiful actress, singer,
writer, with Broadway credits and a penchant for
longsword. The music plays a variation of the main
kulingtan theme from the Singkil dance. The work
documents Candido’s experimentation with potential
filmmaking techniques, including cheap in-camera
effects, for an arnis film he was working on for the
last three years.

2. Meditations For the Restless (2001)– Candido’s
first work to explore editing within a static image
and the title track for his first solo E.P. “I was
just learning final cut pro, on my G3, and discovered
freeze frames, 1 frame cuts, dissolves, color grading.
I started at 6 in the evening and finished 6 in the
morning,” he says of this.

3. KUTTIN KANDY (2001)– Candido’s first project
edited with FCP. A feature on Kuttin Kandy, one of the
first and most feared female turntablists in the U.S
and an ate to the thriving Filipino/a hip hop scene.

hour television pilot about the most ethnically
diverse neighborhood in Toronto Canada, featuring a
cast composed of actual residents from the area and
shot during a time when the neighborhood was

children’s commercial shot in the Philippines.

broke into the classical music scene in Toronto in

8. The Kuya Medley (2003) – A docu-musical of the soul
group KUYA performing in the executive offices of
record labels in New York and hustling for a deal.
Despite the undeniable talent, the industry couldn’t
commit to an all-Pinoy soul group. They had many
supporters, from Wycleff, to Babyface, to Pharell, to
Timbaland and beyond. Also an exercise in live music

9. Purification by Fire (2002) – Members from The
Fiesta Filipina Dance Troupe of Canada backstage
before a performance in Pittsburg. This is an excerpt

Folkdance company in Canada.

very first Filipino feature film from Canada, and up
to now, the only one. From Candido’s Ishmael Bernal
award -winning feature length film Lolo’s Child. A
