This docudrama examines the Filipino experience at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, focusing on the filmmaker's grandfather, an Igorot warrior, one of the 1,100 tribal natives displayed as anthropological "specimens" in the notorious Philippine Village exhibit. A unique fusion of rare archival images, and carefully orchestrated visual sequences shot in the present, Bontoc Eulogy is an original and innovative investigation of, memory and the spectacle of the "Other" in turn-of-the-century America.
