This essay examines the various levels of dialogue and contestation between Lino Brocka's films-and to a large extent, Brocka himself as a cultural worker~and the Marcos regime. The focus will on Brocka's film, Jaguar (1979), as a cognitive map of the effects of the Marcos regime that enforces the nation and its people into the circuits of the present day operations of transnationalism. The envelopment of the nation-space and bodies of people within the transnational grid, in turn, constructs newer modes of experiencing the everyday and the social.

Keywords: Jaguar; Lino Brocka; nation-space; politics; third world; transnationalism
