Philippines - To Save a People
Tribal peoples are threatened with extinction having been pushed by the powerful to areas where they can no longer meet their basic needs. Their marginal existence makes them second class citizens in their own ancestral territory. Rich and diverse cultures are dying. 25 years ago, the Santa Cruz Mission began its work to save these tribals and their culture. The film deals with the work of this Mission and that of Food First in their efforts to better the lives of these tribals.
