Part of the Take One Action 2022 Season
Delikado means ‘dangerous’ in Tagalog, and danger suffuses every frame of this riveting documentary following the fearless Filipino ‘para-enforcers’ confronting illegal loggers in El Nido, Palawan – one of the most fatal places in the world to be a land defender. A gripping dissection of systems of political violence and economies of exploitation, Delikado bears urgent witness to those who take their lives in their hands every time they step into the forests of El Nido – viscerally capturing the indescribable risk and desperation they face as the only protectors of the Philippines’ last ecological frontier.
