"Ang Dagat Ang Pinagmulan" by Mike Elijansantos of My Life On Board (IG: @mylifeonboard)
How does a tourism-reliant community survive during lockdown? In San Juan, La Union, a family goes back to their roots: fishing. Set in the surfing capital of the Northern Philippines, “Ang Dagat Ang Pinagmulan” centers on the people and the municipality of San Juan - its history as a fishing village before becoming a tourism hotspot. It tackles not only the shift in the residents’ livelihood when surfing became prominent in the area, but also the changes in its water ecosystem. While exploring the effect of dormant tourism during the pandemic in both the community and the environment, the documentary presses a very important question: Is it possible for both booming tourism and thriving nature to co-exist at the same time?
Featuring the Jomarie Ebueza, Philippines' current ranked number 1 surf athlete for longboarding.
