Kodao Productions is dedicated in documenting events that affect the Filipinos’ search for a national identity and quest for genuine democracy, sovereignty and economic development. Kodao distinguishes itself from commercial media outfits with its strong commitment to serve the underserved and marginalized sectors of Philippine society.
