Disclaimer: This overview accommodates spoilers.
Baboy Halas: Wailings in the Forest (2016), Bagane Fiola’s second movie, is the narratively spare imagination of a life in an unsullied earth. Centering on the story of Mampog the boar hunter, the movie makes an attempt to learn the way a life that depends so much on the natural world is possible.
A landscape of the leafy and befogged heights of the mountains of Davao backdrops the film’s title card. To the urban viewers, the forest is fearsome and threatening even in its flattened type. The forest in profile—a landscape—immediately introduces the engulfing Different of Mampog and the rest of the Matigsalug individuals. Inside the seemingly impenetrable thicket, the forest is revealed in its claustrophobic glory. Raphael Meting and Mark Limbaga’s digital camera cuts its own path within the forest, following Mampog’s hunts by means of dense foliage, and the thick undergrowth beneath which disguise treacherously slippery rocks. The skillful handling of the digicam imagines an ordered world and makes us consider that Mampog’s purposeful meandering by a thick, claustrophobic forest may be adopted by a navigable, albeit alien, space.

This ordering mirrors the Matigsalug individuals’s makes an attempt to negotiate with their wild home: historical forest dwellers are appeased and cajoled, a hooting owl is considered a foul omen, and a white pig is a disturbance within the order of issues. For the forest is the one supply of Mampog’s family’s sustenance. Wild pigs are hunted, freshwater fish and toads are trapped in streams, and wild crops are foraged, but in no other approach will the pure world be bent to human wants and needs. All the pieces is appealed to the forest dwellers, animals (the canine Bugtong, the hooting alimokon (wild pigeon)), and inanimate substances (the fire). In probably the most remarked upon scene of Baboy Halas, Mampog lights a small fire to warm a chilly night inside a cave, protecting his finish of a “dialogue” with the Cave Dweller. As the viewers is glued to the hunter’s wrestle for hearth, we're also reminded how negligible human existence is in the riot of life within the forest: “It's a lot to ask, but do maintain us alive,” Mampog pleads to the cold blackness of the cave.

This smallness is somewhat amplified in Baboy Halas’ unidimensional characters: there is nothing much that we learn about how Mampog thinks about their way of life, or how his wives think about the household’s constant battle for meals. Mampog’s younger wife looks off into the space, apparently deep in thought about the nightmare explaining the cause of her husband’s recently disturbed behavior, however these ideas are up for anybody to guess. This denial of revelation might be learn, on the one hand, as signifying an ethical determination to maintain a respectful distance between filmmaker and topics. Alternatively, it additionally asks us to connect with Mampog on a different stage. Clearly, Mampog and his people do not struggle with the forest to live, however they negotiate in a reciprocal relationship. Mampog’s transformation into a boar may be learn, among different things, as settling scores—the hunter pays for his hunt by becoming the hunted. This want for equilibrium is echoed within the formal legal guidelines of the Matigsalug, as revealed by the settling of dispute between two communities. Brass gongs and horses are exchanged over civil discourse, tobacco, and brew.
To an outsider, Baboy Halas appears like a documentary exposition of the everyday life of the Matigsalug. Isolating the Matigsalug from the urban lowlands, the movie conceives of a individuals who live peacefully in an unsullied earth, with no trendy garments and instruments, reliant completely on what the forest provides. Yet this isolation might be something however literally real. Baboy Halas is set in Sitio Maharlika, Barangay Baganihan, Marilog District in Davao Metropolis.[ii]Baganihan is understood for its cold local weather, and is a familiar hang-out for DavaoeƱos in search of to flee the heat and bustle of the town. This imagined isolation in Baboy Halas gathers special significance, a yr after reviews of harassment and killing of Lumads in Mindanao broke nationwide news in August to October 2015. Mampog and his household dwell undisturbed in forests the place the Matigsalug have been residing for generations, belying the systematic and concerted efforts of the state and mining capital to terrorize communities for their ancestral lands. But Fiola chooses to not foreground this and as an alternative presents the Matigsalug as a group in its own, not necessarily virtually all the time defined by their subjection; in an interview with Davao Immediately he reveals that the movie’s narrative was largely drawn from the stories the Matigsalug instructed him.[iii] Though these stories are largely about privation and need, the Matigsalug are nevertheless lively brokers in their lives—of their negotiation with an detached natural world, in settling neighborhood disputes, in choosing to stay in the mountains and refuse the attract of the plains. The Matigsalug themselves act out their stories, and the uneven performances—some had been indifferent, whereas some were engaged (as with the expansive Du)—assert every nonprofessional actor’s own understanding of his/her participation in a film representing their lifestyle.

In a way, the white domesticated pig that Mampog shoots down stands for the tamable life that the lowlands provide. Feeding a family would hypothetically be simpler as opportunities to work for a living in the bayan are far more reliable than the fruits of a hunt. Confronted with a alternative, Mampog does what he has always achieved and “kills” the white pig, desperate for meat for his household. He consequently loses his grip on actuality: the white pig (if there ever actually was one) is still alive and well, however visible only to him; the white pig transforms into a mysterious white determine (a forest dweller?); and he cuts down men who had eaten the pig roasted. Mampog has fallen out of favor with the forest, which then denies him which means. Solely his metamorphosis will reconcile—certainly, literally reincorporate—Mampog once more with the forest.
