Since natural disasters constantly occur today, the socio-cultural aspects
of disaster risk reduction are becoming increasingly important. It is
essential to consider disaster preparation and the sharing of knowledge and
experience in disaster response. This sharing of knowledge is as important
as implementing common techniques of disaster risk reduction, and it is
becoming more significant in the world of high social instability, given
the rapid urbanization and global migration the Philippines is undergoing.

The Philippines may offer a significant model for such sharing of knowledge
and experience. The country has undergone colonization, war, and
dictatorship; it has also experienced numerous disasters such as
earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, typhoons, and floods. It has fostered a
sense of 'common destiny' as a Philippine nation, despite consisting of
more than 7,000 islands, with over 170 languages and dialects spoken.
Historians have indicated the significance of Jose Rizal's novels and Jesus
Christ's life and epic narrative in fostering the Philippines' nationhood
in the Philippine Revolution of 1896-98.

To help connect with the evolution of the Philippines' nationhood in the
era of rapid urbanization, global migration, and information technology,
focus should be given to the storytelling format seen in popular media,
such as current films and television programs. In this lecture, these films
and programs will be compared to traditional art performances to analyze
the current form of Philippine nationhood.
