When you fear and feel powerless, create an art work they say. Shout your advocacy through artistry, through beauty, through cinema. But what if, you cannot comprehend art. What is artistic expression to you if you are hungry in the middle of the night, if you are landless all your life, if you have to watch your sick children die? They are the Sama D’laut group, the subject of Director Luisito Ignacio’s film Laut. Seen on the big screen is the reeking condition of a displaced community and their constant fight to continue living.
