Baconaua by Joseph Israel Laban. Cinemalaya 2017 Full-Length Feature Category finalist

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.  Floating on their waters are thousands of apples.  No one knows where it came from.  Some see it as a bad omen from the baconaua – a creature of myth.  A few think it’s a miracle from heaven.  While others fear a more sinister source.
