A WORDLESS Film by The Creative Lounge Filmless Films. My brother and I planned a short walk down Osmena BLVD - Vito Cruz. We couldn't stop ourselves from taking snap shots and video snippets of the scene there, instead of walking we started shooting. We saw families living a few feet away from the runway, somebody cooking chicken adobo, one man cooking rice while the train passes by, kids playing near the super highway, and more risky stints. I remember watching a documentary film by Christian Frei with James Nachtwey plus A scene from real life - James Nachtwey in Indonesia.

There will come a time when PNR will have regular trip schedules possibly the same as the commuter trains of LRT, LRT2 and MRT and a much-desired single ticketing system like Hong Kong's Octopus and Singapore's EZ-link cards.
