Shadows of the Reef - Written and directed by Anton Juan

Saturday, Feb 23, 2013 7:30p

A young boy from a Filipino fishing village has died while working as a diver on a Leviathan fishing trawler, one that uses the controversial Muro-ami style of fishing. His a mother is guilt-ridden about her son’s death. In her village’s Good Friday tradition, a man is elected to portray Christ and be crucified. The mother wants to perform this role as penance for sending her own child to the Muro-ami. This play powerfully addresses child labor laws, religion, and environmental issues.
