CINEMALAYA + DIGITANK (2009)
Photographer LAYA MARQUEZ is sent to Isabela to capture a rare harvest ritual called Mangatyanan. What she finds there is more than just a dying tribe but a deep connection to the past she's been running away from.
"...quite the achievement, a work that cements Tarog’s place as one of the country’s most promising young filmmakers, exhibiting a level of proficiency in almost all aspects of the craft that can hardly be found among the country’s more seasoned directors."
- PHILBERT DY
"…undoubtedly masterfully made, with each minute of the film crafted with the meticulousness that one can normally expect from an experienced filmmaker."
