This project explores the unique challenges faced by children in island communities in the Philippines who must swim long distances with their school supplies to get an education. Lutaw follows two siblings, Geramy and Isko, as they go about their day on the island of Caohagan. Geramy is a budding inventor determined to develop a better commute for her and her classmates. Accompanied by her rambunctious little brother Isko, Geramy puts her inventions to the test. The film has no dialogue in order to maximize international distribution and raise awareness of this important and far-reaching issue. This 3D animated virtual reality project is made possible by the partnership between Oculus VR for Good program and the Filipino NGO Yellow Boat of Hope.
