This indie film was previously screened as a work in progress called Voice, Tilted Screens, and Extended Scenes of Loneliness: Filipinos in High Definition during the 2007 Cinemanila International Film Festival. It had its world premiere in Rotterdam (single screen) and Berlin Forum Expanded (multi-channel).


After director John Torres added a few more scenes to the film, its final version was screened first in Singapore. Its alternative title is Taon noong ako'y anak sa labas.

Years When I was a Child Outside is at once a meditation. It is a meta-film that unravels a journey, a chronicle of stories through foreign regions.
