Event description

Description

The term "Dap-Ay" is taken from The Mountain Province of The Philippines. The Dap-Ay was the central meeting point for all village elders to meet and discuss events. It was also the central hub for village rituals and festivals.

Dap-Ay is a series of events hosted by Native Province, an online platform sharing all the wonderful talent that The Philippines have to offer. The Filipino diaspora is one of the largest in the world but not enough is done in Europe to champion talented Filipinos and Filipinas in and out of The Philippines - Native Province is working to change this. Join us in our journey of discovery!

On the 22nd of April, there will be a special screening of Transit (2013)

Filipino independent drama film written and directed by Hannah Espia. The film follows a story of a single father who is forced to hide his children from immigration police in Israel after the Israeli government decides to deport children of immigrant workers. It's powerful work exploring the issues facing overseas domestic workers and subsequently the complexeties affecting their children who are navigating conflicting identities.

It won a palethora of awards at 2013 Cinemayla Film Festival and won Best Director at 2014 Gawad Urian Awards.

It was selected as the Philippine entry for Best Foreign Language Film for 2013 Oscars.
