SEE YOU, GEORGE!
A group of hospital workers takes a trip down memory lane as they honor the life of one of their colleagues.
While the Philippines is now slowly recovering from the global health crisis, a group of hospital workers commemorates the life of a “fallen” colleague through a virtual necrological service. The solemn gathering suddenly turns into a recollection of dark and haunting memories.

Following the unclosed story of the medical front liners’ fate in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, this short film tackles their struggles and frustration towards our country’s healthcare system.
The film introduces metaphorical representations of issues that are rarely discussed as these somehow move into the territory of socio-political injustice. It is a stand-alone sequel to the 2020 QCinema short film Miss You, George! wherein viewers would have a complete understanding of the story without watching the first installment.
