Contra Mundum is a companion book to the 2015 digital restoration of the 1965 film Nick Joaquin’s A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino, directed by Lamberto Avellana and produced by Manuel De Leon. 

The monograph includes an essay that explores the production history of the film and the milieu in which it was created: the tail end of the so-called studio era and the changing tastes of the Filipino audience. 

Also included are cast profiles and a detailed timeline, accompanied by more than 100 rare photographs, covering the rise and influence of LVN Pictures from the late 1930s to the late 1960s.
