Bontoc Eulogy

Bontoc Eulogy is a 1995 movie by Marlon Fuentes. It follows the lives of a certain Igorot warrior by the name of Markod and his fellow Igorots who were brought by the Americans to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair in Missouri, United States. Some of the footages in the film are reenactments but majority of the scenes were taken from real archives. This is a very interesting film to watch if you want to learn more about a sad piece of our history as Igorots. You can watch the entirety of the film below. It runs for approximately 57 minutes. It's a very rare film and it's very fortunate that someone uploaded it on YouTube. So if you have the time, watch it when it's still available online. Who knows, YouTube  might take the film down for copyright infringement issues or something.
