Pureza is finally on DVD!

This film made me learn more about myself and how much I questioned the spoiled culture of Negros and it educated me as a film person and as a fellow Negrosanon.  It was quite a humbling experience but something that I feel was necessary.  And I will always cherish these lessons.  And I vowed that I will always do something for and about Negros so that I do not just criticize it.

Pureza…the real story of Negros sugar.

With deleted interviews and scenes.

Produced by the Negros Pureza Foundation, Bonfire Productions, Inc and Seventh Films. Now available in Cafe Uma in Bacolod and Seventh Films office in Metro Manila.


Peace pond and a ferris wheel for Ethanation (Christmas 2013).

Ethan played holins (marbles in English), learned a new game called taxi’ (no English translation), witness a budol eating fight and headed the pitching of the tents for all the kids to sleep in.  He also bought another wooden slingshot from the market and practiced his slingshot. He never gets to do this in the States.  Peace Pond is Ethan’s 3rd home.

This trip, Ethan stayed in Peacepond for 3 days, then went to my uncle’s punong which is also a fish pond farm and we were there two days. Christmas day in Silay. And we stayed in in Manila because he caught a virus. On our last day, we went up Skyranch in Tagaytay and he rode his first zipline.  The Skyranch has the tallest ferris wheel in the country.
