Thy Womb


Directed by Brillante Mendoza
Philippines, 2012


A story of unconditional love about a Bajau midwife coping with the irony of her own infertility amid the deprivations of her gypsy community in Tawi-Tawi. A saga of island life stuck between the devil of passion and the deep blue sea of tradition.
