Consequences of Man

A creature that resembles the human form scours the forest. Goats from some unknown village in a part of Southern Philippines have mysteriously disappeared, while in another village, men continue to quarry from a river that has seen the worst of flood. Consequences of Man blends performance, poetry and documentary to explore the intersections of superstition and dogma.
