In conversation with filmmaker/dance professor Patrick Alcedo. A program of his ethnographic documentaries that together spotlight the indigeneity of Philippines culture through their exploration of identity and how the versatile and magical art of dance can share it. Featuring Ati-Atihan Lives (55 minutes), an intimate and absorbing document of the religious celebration of Ati-Atihan, its festivities, and its participants; and Dancing Manilenyos (20 minutes), an award-winning testament to the uplifting power of a ballet among disenfranchised Filipino youth.
