KINABUHI | A DOCUMENTARY SHORT FILM
Our Award Winning Documentary Short Film Kinabuhi is a story about Filipino Coconut Farmers struggling to survive a Way-of-Life exploited by industrial agriculture and crippled by disasters like Typhoon Haiyan.
The film was featured by The United Nations at the 2015 Climate Conferences in Paris, has won 3 international film festivals, and was awarded the prestigious Vimeo Staff Pick.
The idyllic coconut palm setting may be extraordinary, but the industrialization of this magnificent “Tree of Life” has a troubled history, responsible for more than 60 percent of the Filipino coconut farming community living in extreme poverty. Their existence producing Copra at the terminal end of the coconut distribution chain often leaves entire communities hopeless.
Our Goal is to Improve the wellbeing of Impoverished Coconut Farming Communities through the Production of The Finest Quality Handmade Coconut Oil.
