DELIKADO

Amidst the tropical rainforests and sprawling turquoise oceans of Palawan, Philippines, a brutal war is waging on two fronts. The first, a physical conflict between volunteer environmental protectors and those who exploit the island’s trees, fisheries, and mountains for profit. In this ongoing battle, the threat of death by violent, greed fueled resistance looms ever present. The second is a political conflict, where justice for the land and its guardians rests on the results of a contentious mayoral election influenced by the exterior threats of big business, tourism, and the government’s controversial, archipelago wide war on drugs.

DELIKADO captures the combined efforts of a heroic non government organization, a magnetic local leader, and the Indigenous Tagbuana people fighting back against the threats to their island’s ecosystem. Engaging cinematography and dramatic editing captures the intense emotions that underpin this intensifying human rights struggle characterized by grave betrayal, loss, and destruction.
-Justin Gerald Ocampo
