A magnificent day to everyone!

Behold is our film Paparo (The ethnic butterfly) which we had founded with deep research and observations about the Dumagat tribes in Sierra Madre Mountain range-- specifically in some portion of Bulacan province.Through this film, we wanted to raise awareness to our fellow Filipinos about how our fellow Dumagats lived and what are some problems they are facing right now. On the other hand, we also wanted to staged our culture to the world and bragged about how rich it is and how lucky to be Filipino.
