Synopsis: Two women in a remote Muslim community confront an escalating blood feud and reach deep into themselves in hopes to undo a devastating conflict stretching back generations. Blending realism, memories and dreams, this delicately powerful film tells the story of individuals forced to confront unquestioned perceptions and tragedies, hidden sorrows, and the exhilaration of fresh possibilities.

Visions/Panawin is organized by Sulo: the Philippine Studies Initiative at NYU in collaboration with NYU King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center and TBA Studios.
