Badjau Anak Laut

Badjau Anak Laut

The Badjaos are a pagan tribe roaming the seas south of the Philippines, whereas the Taosugs live on the land. A beautifully-shot movie. Filmed entirely in the Philippines by a Filipino director, with a Filipino cast and crew. One of Cathay-Keris’s international productions. Even though it is a Singaporean production, this movie pertains more to the history of Filipino film.
