A is for Agustin (2019)

Grace Simbulan

Agustin is a tribesman close to his forties who loves to sing but has never had the opportunity to learn to read or write. When he finds out his boss cheats him out of his wages again, he decides to enroll in grade 1. Over time, however, Agustin becomes increasingly torn between two realities: the children's world in school, and the harsh reality of the world outside. As the needs of his family mount, he must decide whether to continue his own quest for self-improvement or pass the opportunity on to his son, the next generation.

 

Walang Rape sa Bontok (2014)

Mark Lester Valle; Carla Pulido Ocampo with GMA Network

Two women, both victims of sexual abuse, yearn and search for a utopia where women can live without being sexually violated. By chance, they encounter a study by renowned anthropologist June Prill-Brett, which mentions that the Bontok of the Philippine Cordilleras have lived for eras without a term, nor concept, nor incidence, of rape. At last, a utopia, where the most heinous of gender crimes is unheard of. Or is it?
