"'DI KA PASISIIL (NEVER SHALL BE CONQUERED)" (Philippines)
CERTIFICATE
DOCUMENTARY: Current Affairs

Entrant: ABS-CBN Corp./ Quezon City
Production Company: ABS-CBN DocuCentral


Additional Credits: Overall-In-Charge Of Production: Ging Reyes; Executive-In-Charge Of Production: Francis Toral; Production Unit Head: Carmina Reyes; Documentarists: Chiara Zambrano, Jeff Canoy; Executive Producer: Hera Sanchez; Program Producer: Kelvin Paulino; Directors Of Photography: Nonie Sales, Ralph Rodriguez; Segment Producers: Cherry Salazar, Dawnavie Dadis; Production Coordinator: Jason Reyes; Musical Scorer: Ean Aguila; Audio Engineer: Kevin Rustia; Graphics Artist: Mich Baetiong
The full-length documentary stresses that the battle for Marawi is not a religious war, contrary to what the terror Maute Group would like the public to believe. It is imperative for the team behind this documentary to be able to promote peace and unity among Filipinos, regardless and in spite of differences in religious affiliation. The documentary hopes that by telling stories leading to, and behind, the battle for Marawi, Filipinos — both in the country and abroad — will understand that there is much more at stake in this conflict than meets the eye. The documentary hopes to shed light on the war to prevent the public from making hasty generalizations that may polarize the already sensitive issue.

“Never forget.” Now is the time in Philippine history where this phrase rings urgency more than ever. Today the remains of former dictator, Ferdinand Marcos, rest at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (The Philippines’ Cemetery for Heroes). In recent months, historical revisionism has been spreading like wildfire on social media, with posts claiming the period of martial law as “the best era in Philippine history.” This is despite the fact that 34,000 were tortured and 800 became desaparecidos or disappeared under martial rule. Alaala (Remember): A Martial Law Special serves as a reminder of the horrors of this dark period in Philippine history, particularly for the youth in whose hands the future of the Philippines lies. Two teams were formed to produce this special: the documentary team and the drama team. The documentary team shadowed the drama team's production, with behind the scenes footages. The documentary team also interviewed personalities who experienced Martial Law atrocities, as well as historians and experts to provide the bigger picture of life during the Marcos dictatorship. The drama team employed the best actors from the roster of GMA Network– Alden Richards, the Philippines’ biggest matinee idol, and award-winning actress Gina Alajar. The short film was directed by internationally acclaimed director, Adolf Alix, Jr.

As the only environment and wildlife show on Philippine television, Born to be Wild receives at least a hundred requests from its viewers every day, asking for help with animal rescue and treatment. One such case was of a dog named “Pag-asa” (Hope). Pag-asa was abandoned on the streets when he contracted a disease that slowly ate up part of his face, leaving a big hole where his nose should have been. Luckily, some concerned citizens rescued the dog and turned him over to a rescue center, the Animal Kingdom Foundation. In this temporary shelter, Pag-asa found the care that he needed, but with his nasal cavity exposed, he remained vulnerable to infections. Born to be Wild host and veterinarian Dr. Nielsen Donato took on the case and discovered that it was a cancerous tumor that led to the damage on Pag-asa’s face. In collaboration with a Japanese reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Nielsen gave Pag-asa a fighting chance by giving him a new face.

In a span of 153 days, more than a thousand soldiers have been wounded, over a hundred troops killed in action, more than 6,000 families forcibly displaced to over 30 evacuation centers, and one peaceful city is now devastated. In the middle of intense firefight in Marawi City, two members of the Combat Camera Team of the 3rd Scout Ranger Battalion are extremely busy. Their mission in the frontline is to document all the operations of the Philippine Army’s combatant units. Marisol Abdurahman meets Codename Alpha and Codename Bravo who use their cameras and not their rifles as primary weapons in the war. Meanwhile, now that the war in Marawi is over, some residents are gradually picking up the pieces in the hopes of restoring their war-torn city. Raffy Tima joins some of the internally displaced persons who dream of bringing their beloved Marawi back to life.

This documentary was produced to expose harsh realities left by the current administration’s war on drugs: 1) that impoverished families no longer seek justice as they fear for their own lives, 2) that funeral parlors are somehow exploiting the situation by imposing large fees on impoverished families who wish to claim the bodies of their murdered loved ones, and 3) that police investigations usually stop at dead-ends when investigating vigilante killings.

In a refugee camp in Bangladesh, a Rohingya mother carefully prepares a simple meal for her kids. They live in a small makeshift tent, bare except for a few belongings strewn on the earthen floor. Hamida says she hardly brought anything when she fled Myanmar, not even clothes for her kids. Her husband was killed by the military, she claims. When asked how she feels about their situation now, Hamida solemnly says heaven is within her reach. In recent years, insurgency has persisted in the northern part of Myanmar, a clash between the Buddhists Burmese and the Rohingya Muslims. The Myanmar government denied the citizenship of the Rohingya and their movement within the country is restricted by local authorities. The internal conflict eventually prompted thousands of Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh. The UN has called the decades-long oppression and the atrocities by the military in Myanmar as a form of “ethnic cleansing”. Myanmar officials are firm in their stance that the Rohingya are not citizens of their nation while neighboring Bangladesh considers them as forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals who could be deported anytime soon. I-Witness followed the journey of a Filipino serving as a humanitarian worker in the largest refugee camp in Bangladesh. This documentary teaches us the value of compassion, bridging differences in color and beliefs.

The sound of gunfire is relentless. In the morning, air raids drop bombs a few blocks away. Inside the main battle area in Marawi, the sound of a tank rushing towards a makeshift clinic rouses everyone into action. In a matter of seconds, a wounded soldier is unloaded onto an examination table attended by a surgeon, an anesthesiologist, an internist and a team of nurses. This is a composite team by the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police. Emergency care facilities near the battleground, no matter how crude, is a life-saving tool that has redefined warfare. Combat casualties benefit greatly from the proximity of a team of medical specialists on-hand to give immediate care until they reach a tertiary hospital. Often, a 10-minute window is all they have to ensure survival. But there is also a casualty collecting point, a smaller facility closer to the battleground that can be reached in under three minutes. Inside the bullet-ridden structure that used to be someone’s home is a makeshift operating table covered in tarpaulin. Outside, what used to be a garage serves as the emergency room. This clinic is manned by a surgeon, Major Candelaria, who joined the troops as a Scout Ranger after being a civilian doctor for 10 years. Despite accepting the realities of war, he admits, it’s tough being a combat doctor because your patients are sometimes your friends.


"INSIDE MARAWI: A REPORT ON 360 VIDEO BY RAFFY TIMA" (Philippines)

Rufino "Raffy" Tima, Jr.; Translator: Katherine Rosanne R. SyCip


As the Battle for Marawi raged for five months, people saw from afar the progressive destruction of the city and with it, the lives of the residents. Up close, the situation was even more dire. This 360-degree video, shot by Raffy Tima as he traveled through the war-torn city, showed unforgivingly all the angles of destruction. Even if the fighting was already over, getting access to the site of the main battle area was not easy. The area was still restricted as it has not yet been cleared. Raffy was able to convince the military to allow him inside the area using his 360-degree camera with one condition: that he delay airing of the resulting footage for one month due to security concerns. Martial law was still in effect at that time, clearing operations were still ongoing and the military was still in pursuit of the remnants of the terrorist Maute group. The resulting footage showed the path walked by soldiers in liberating the city – going into structures that are now little more than rubble, streets hidden by debris, nests used by terrorist snipers and demolished homes of residents whose lives are also now ruins.

Philippine Seas was a documentary special that aimed to uncover the wonders and threats surrounding the Philippines’ marine gems. The team went on a rigorous 10-day expedition across Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. In Moalboal, Cebu’s world-famous dive site, the team witnessed hundreds of thousands of sardines gather in a single ball in a moment that can only be described as impressive. While in nearby Bais, Negros Oriental, the team looked into the current situation of dolphins once being caught and slaughtered before becoming the province’s leading tourist attraction. Off the coast of Sarangani in Mindanao, the team experienced what life is like for tuna fishermen who wait days for a single catch. Under the harsh elements, the team witnessed the daily struggles of those who rely on the seas for a living. The most heartbreaking moment was discovering a group of fishermen detained in Indonesia for fishing in foreign waters. The dwindling sea catch has forced many small fishermen to cross international boundaries in hopes of feeding their families. Yet international poaching remains a huge problem in the Philippines, too. In Palawan in Luzon, the team visited the site where sharks were recently confiscated from Vietnamese poachers. Yet all hope is not lost. In the same seas of Palawan, the team came face to face with a dugong or sea cow, a critically endangered marine mammal. After the airing of the special, eight Filipino fishermen detained in Indonesia were repatriated to the Philippines. The court found insufficient grounds to charge them for illegal fishing.

An estimated 9 million Filipinos can’t read, write, or count, while 24 million have never been to school. Driven by a determination to build a community with zero non-readers, the head teacher of San Jose Elementary School in the province of Sorsogon started a program to teach children in remote villages how to read. In this mission, he is helped by volunteer little teachers – his students who share his advocacy of making sure that no child in their place will remain unschooled. One of them is 12-year-old Dagul. Together with his fellow little teachers, he braves the long river of Donsol on board a bamboo raft that they sometimes have to push against the current, and takes an hour walk up to a village on a mountain. Their goal is to reach children who have difficulty reading because they live so far from school that they’re often absent from classes. By bringing the skill of reading to his friends, Dagul hopes to help his fellow students reach their dreams. Dagul himself has his own struggles at home. Most days, he lives alone with his sisters as their father works away from home and they’ve been separated from their mother. Despite this, Dagul pursues his volunteer work to bring pride and honor to his mother, his very first teacher.

Violent and wild – this is how a family in Daet, Camarines Norte describes a being that they placed inside a bamboo cage outside their home. But this is not a ferocious animal, but another member of their family. “Nene”, not her real name, was caged by her father for four long years. Nene is not alone. 1 out of 5 Filipinos has mental illness but the more alarming issue is that there are only 527 psychiatrists across the country who render service to them. Is there still hope for Nene? Can the woman inside the cage still be treated? Or was she ever that violent to begin with?
