Sayaw sa Alon
The Bajau possess the ancient wisdom of the sea. Can they preserve the invaluable heritage in the face of war, western acculturation, globalization and environmental degradation?
The documentary combines the traditional dances and music of the Sulu Archipelago to dramatize the rapid transformation of the Bajau from a seafaring people to a land-based nomadic group.
Shot in Tawitawi, Sitangkai, Zamboanga, Metro Manila and Laguna, the documentary follows the Bajau flight from Sulu Archipelago
to the railroad slums of Laguna.
