8. QWERTY

SUMMARY:
The title refers to the universal keyboard style used originally in typewriters, computers & cellphones. It is said that the original keyboard style is not the most functional of designs but to change all keyboards in the world is no longer possible due to its universal prevalence. Just like corruption in the police force. The movie QWERTY is based on a found story about a Youtube video that went viral last year that implicated some members of a Manila precinct. It captured on camera how some uniformed men had subjected a suspected drug pusher with cigarette burns as they tied his genitals with a string.

10. Tambara

SUMMARY:
Tambara is an adaptation of Macario Tiu’s Balyan, the 2005 1st Place winner for Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Award for Short Story Bisaya Division.

The story revolves around Lando, an elementary teacher who doesn’t believe in myths and asserts his modern sensibilities, and Datu Pikong, a tribal shaman who uses an imaginary cellphone to reach Apo Sandawa when someone wants to get healed from an ailment. 

Lando, being educated, has ceased to acknowledge the tribal beliefs and practices of the Indigenous Peoples. He accuses Datu Pikong of capitalizing on the superstitious belief of the townsfolk and is furious when he sees the shaman take offerings from the people.

Swept by his fury, Lando destroys the tambara (an altar for the deities) when he found it under a Balete tree. Unknowingly, Lando angered many diwatas who want to take his wife and baby as punishment for what he has done. Lando was forced to face circumstances which pushed him to desperately resort to the Balyan only to realize that not everything in this world can be spelled solely with the human knowledge. 

11. Duwaya

SUMMARY:
The story is about Amir Solaiman, a doctor, a father and a husband. On one of his medical missions, he got reunited with an old family friend and a distant relative, Hadji Usman. Amir paid the old man’s family a visit for old time’s sake and was crushed to see their condition. It is a Maranao tradition to always help relatives which is evident in their clannish nature.

Life drastically changed when the old man died. Amir, being the last person he spoke to has to honor the death wish. He was bequeathed to marry Samira – Hadji Usman’s only daughter. Torn by the responsibility of respecting an elder’s death wish, Amir sought permission from his wife and advice from a Shariah counsel.

Samira, agreed to marrying Amir after learning that the 1st wife, Nadja, consented to the marriage. Little did Nadja know that her decision will greatly affect her children and the dynamics of their once happy family. Much to Amir’s dismay, he thought he could provide justice to both wives and children.
