Digital dreamers. The five big fishes of Durian Cinema who are in the state of happiness while exposing their awards during the Mindanao Film Fest Awards Night last Dec.9 at the Damosa Gateway, Davao City
Jao Yaiya, a 20-year old badjao, has an ambitious dream in life. It is not to have a stable job nor to be a leader of the Badjao tribe as what his father wanted him to be such, but to be a normal young citizen in the city where free from discrimination and open in modernity.
He left his family, his community and his clan with a promise to forget everything in him as a badjao and to adapt the normal cityboy’s life.
For how many days of pretending that he came from tagalog region, he met modern young people as his friends who helped him upgrade and changed his life morally and socially. However, his new image in the city put his life in trouble when he encountered his greatest enemy- his conscience.
The conflict of the story begins when he and his peers, drunk and controlled by forbidden drugs, raped the lady who sells native accessories in the streets. When he entered in the room for his turn, he was stopped by the reality after recognizing the naked girl- his badjao sister. Will Jao sacrifice his sister to hide the truth?
The story aims to show the effects of cultural discrimination to the natives who live with their dreams to be one of the people living in the world of today’s generation and set aside their ethnicity. Are you one of them?
We really owe it to the fact that this production team has just recognized and finally registered in Alchemy of Vision and Lights (TV Productions and Creative services).Since we are not that big group,the team is still looking for guilders. If you think that you have a geniune skill in creative writing, photo and video editing, scripwriting and any film works,then let us have a deal!.
For a while, we are focusing here in any film festival here in Mindanao. As soon as our dream will be realized,we will surely reach the big film industry.
