War Is a Tender Thing

  • Philippines
Audio Tracks 

Through her own family’s memories of struggle, Adjani unravels the story of the war-torn Southern Philippines as an endless attempt at survival and adaptation to state policies that disregard the most basic concept of home. However imperfect and partial, these memories make up a narrative of the war that is as cogent as the factual telling.
