Movie Review: Piding

Once upon a time, you were born. In the Philippines, there was no science education when you were a child. When they began to offer it in your adulthood, you leap at the chance and studied harder than everyone else. You learned of kingdoms and species and genes and atoms. Science helped you to see  the bigger world beyond.  You studied so well, an American university paid you to keep studying with them, so you left. 

You gained mystery over the evolution of birds there, but you missed home the whole time. You lost your first wife and son to Science. So with degree in hand, you went back to your people. You find that they had burned their forests, and had exploded their seas. So you gave a new bird to your people: because, now you knew how to use it to save them. This was the Piding. And the rest is the story of Oliver Carlos.

An unconventional story telling with interesting subject and plot. The film succeeds in making you more curious and wanting to watch more of the film. A one of a kind film that you may catch in this year's Cinema One Originals Film Festival 

My Verdict: 3/5
