Filmmaker brings Abra’s culture abroad
by PIA

BANGUED, Abra – Two  multi-awarded documentary films of Abrenian filmmaker  Dexter Macaraeg were shown at the Sinehan sa Konsuldado in Frankfurt, Germany in celebration of Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa with the theme “Wikang katutubo: Tungo sa isang bansang Filipino.”

The films shown were “Am-Amma” and “Tata Pilo” which mainly featured Abrenian culture. 

“Am-amma” highlights the traditional weaving of the abel cloth. The film focuses on Norma Agaid-Mina, a Tingguian from Peñarrubia and one of Abra’s well-known loom weavers. Her abel features Tingguian culture, strength, and resilience.

“Tata Pilo” is a documentary about Teofilo Garcia, a Gawad sa Manlilikha Ng Bayan awardee for his dedication to the traditional craft of making gourd hat  locally called kattukong or tabungaw.

Aside from the free film screening, Macaraeg also underscored the importance of cinematography through a lecture and symposium. He also promoted the different native products of Abra.

The activity was attended by 35 members of the Filipino-German community in Frankfurt.

He acknowledged the support of Consul General Evelyn Austria-Garcia for the opportunity to share his insights and experiences in the film industry.
