BONTOC EULOGY by Marlon E. Fuentes

Bontoc Eulogy follows a Filipino-American in his lifelong search for his roots through the villages of Mountain Province and through countless museums and archives in the US. In this film, Marlon Fuentes describes, using a combination of reenactments and actual footage, how tribal Filipinos were displayed like circus animals for all the “civilized world” to see at the 1904 World Fair in St. Louis.
