Review

The remote island of Marinduque in the Philippines provided the inspiration for this new work. Fifteen years ago, the mining company owned by Canadians closed down and it suddenly changed the fortunes of the inhabitants. Last December 2008, my production company went directly to the island not expecting anything. People talk about the past prosperity. Some wanted the mine back for the money. Others wanted it back but were very cautious to talk about it especially on the critical issues of environmental destruction. The story and script came naturally when I sat down to write it. I just did character studies, a straight story of ordinary people trapped in post-colonial issues, post-multinational prosperity discourse.
