Various real-life Ilocano food entrepreneurs
Micro food establishments and stalls have been gravely affected by the pandemic. Ang Mga Nawalang Pag-asa at Panlasa features the struggles being faced by the Ilocano food entrepreneurs and how they are slowly rising amidst the challenges of this health crisis.
This is a documentary about the quest of “Pagkaing Iloco” in the midst of a pandemic.
To say that we went through a great deal of difficulty making this documentary would be an understatement. By extensively expanding our vision and thoroughly learning the lives of the people involved, this project has come to life.
As a filmmaker, it is with great pride and honor to be the voice of the voiceless, most especially in this trying times that we are facing. Sharing these small stories of success after suffering, victory after a long battle, means a lot to me, as well as to my co-director Mr. Kevin Jay Ayson. “Ang Mga Nawalang Pag-asa at Panlasa” depicts the long journey of Ilocano cuisine along its way of survival in the midst of pandemic. The actual series of unfortunate events that happened in the lives of our fellow Ilocano food entrepreneurs reflect our current situation as Filipinos in a holistic manner. We will witness their unclosed stories and unending quest of finding their lost hopes and flavors.
