A casts of the movie were Mara Lopez,

A Cinemalaya 2014 indie film attributes the rich culture and traditions of the T’boli tribe of South Cotabato, Philippines. The title of the movie is K’na the Dreamweaver. The amazing writer and director of the movie is Ida Anita del Mundo. The main casts of the movie were Mara Lopez, RK Bagatsing, Alex Vincent Medina, Nonie Buencamino, Bembol Roco and Erlinda Villalobos. The movie is all about a princess of the T’boli group and her duty as a princess. She discovers that she has been chosen, to be her village’s dreamweaver, by the gods. She starts dreaming and she has the ability to weave together her village’s warring tribes. She had to choose between the love of her life and her duty to protect her tribe. Sadly, she had to give up her one true love. At the end when K’na returned to her tribe, she found out that Silaw was gone.The movie has enchanting visuals presenting the natural beauty of the sceneries. The cinematography captures the vivid colors of the region. Not much of the natural beauty of the Philippines is noticed especially when the rural community is expanding. It was nice too see some beauty left in the Philippines, setting aside the polluted areas. The camerawork showed well framed scenes of the movie. Every angle has a story. With the right and great angles, people tend to feel the story or the scenes more. The costumes, set pieces and the production design were very detailed. It is amazing how much attention they gave to every detail.  Beyond the components, the movie does not offer much. The pacing of the plot is very slow and straightforward. Future events are somehow predictable. It could have been better if the script had more soul to it. The movie should have showed more K’na’s ability to weave rather than just the dreams. Since she is a dreamweaver, dreaming and weaving should balance out each other. K’na’s love story is not just that convincing. The development of K’na and Silaw’s love story is just too boring.What I like about the movie is that it showcases the traditions and cultures found here in the Philippines. It showed that there are still people wearing traditional clothes, living in traditional houses, dancing to traditional music, following traditional rules and weaving traditional patterns. By including these in the movie, people would appreciate the Filipino culture more. People might even be inspired to make more films related to the traditional cultures of the Filipinos. Films like these tend to reveal what cultures, traditions and places in the Philippines are still preserved. I also admire the casts who did their best to learn the T’boli language just for the film. It really showed how dedicated they were to the film. Their efforts are much appreciated.This movie is a momentous piece of cultural film-making. It is quite nice to see cultural movies since a lot of movies now are influenced by other cultures. I would recommend others to watch more cultural films and maybe the culture of the Filipinos might bloom more than ever.
