BACONAUA

by Joseph Israel Laban

92mins |Coming-of-age Drama| R13

After a particularly strong squall, a sleepy fishing village in a tiny island in Southern Tagalog wakes up to an astonishing sight–their sea has turned red with thousands of floating apples. No one knows where it came from. Some look at it as a bad omen from the baconaua – a creature of myth. A few think it is a miracle from heaven, while others fear a more sinister source.
