Batang West Side: Diskurso ng Konsensiya Kaakuhan at Kasaysayan

Sang-ayon sa paniniwala ng ilang kulturang Asyano, ginagamit ang pamamaraang regresyon para magkaroon ng impormasyon ang isang tao tungkol sa kaniyang nakaraang buhay. Isa umano itong batayan para makilala ang sarili, at tangkain itong iugnay at bigyang-lunan sa kaligirang ginagalawan. Kahit sa simpleng pagbabalik-tanaw lamang, maaari nang magkaroon ng katuturan at paliwanag ang pagkatao at kinahinatnan ng isang indibidwal. Sa pamamagitan ng ganitong dalumat ng paggunita, nakabuo si Lav Diaz ng naratibong tumugaygay at humamon sa sikolohiyang Filipino.

Art And Angano

I had just moved to Angono From Manila to do research of festivals. It was Holy Week, and on my way to attend the church services in the poblacion I saw a crowd of costume people in the street. The women were wrapped in black shrouds and red-caped men brandished spears. In the midst were the man bearing a cross. He did not speak as he trudge along the rocky path that snaked up the mountain behind the townsfolk's homes. The crowd was reenacting the Christ's Passion. I was mesmerized. All my life I had thought of Holy Week only as a time to run off the seashore. I learned that the silent man was a local healer who had himself crucified every year.

They've Come This Far

It has been more than 10 years since a "study group" composed mostly of Muslim students and out-of-school youth rallied behind the pseudonymous "Abu Sayyaf" and transformed themselves into one of the most virulent Islamic militant in Southern Philippines. They unleashed an unprecedented war of terror with shock waves reverberating in the whole country and abroad.

Abu Sayyaf" is a pseudonym of Ustadh Abdurajak Janjalani Abubakar. Unknown to many, the "Abu Sayyaf" is not a formal organization. It has no organizational structure. It is merely a jama'a, a loose, almost chaotic grouping of disenchanted Muslim youth. When the Abu Sayyaf is projected as a well-organized phalanx of mujahideen, this neat picture is provided by the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
