Beb and I went to Gateway to support his friend Lester, who edited a film entered in the Moonrise festival. Their documentary film "The Hidden treasures of Agutayan" focuses on the beauty of the coral reef in, well, Agutayan in Cagayan de Oro. Agutayan, incidentally, is now a preserved sanctuary for fishes. The local government with the help of corporate sponsors are now successfully rehabilitating the damaged area harmed due to dynamite fishing. The docu was under half an hour long, and since it was a festival for the environmental cause, it was screened along a couple more docus entered in the competition.
Once in while, you just feel lucky living in such a beautiful country. I sure hope to God most of the people feel that way, and would practice a little more responsibility now and then. Blessed, that is what we are. If only we all realize that.
