directed by Lewis Manalo

Part 1 of my feature-length documentary looking at the culture of the Philippines through the national pastime of cockfighting. Making no attempts at simple moral judgement on the sport, the movie instead looks at the place the rituals of cockfighting and gambling have in Filipino culture.

Experimental in form, the movie explores its ideas by telling a fictional story with documentary footage. The movie was first distributed FOD in 2007.
