My Navel is Buried in the Sea

My Navel is Buried in the Sea   - The Philippines

My Navel is Buried in the Sea focuses on the fishermen and seafarers from Bantayan Island, The Philippines. The film attempts to capture the significance and mystery of the sea to the millions of Filipinos who derive their living from it, thus giving shape to a reality that is rarely seen. Life at sea is shown from various viewpoints, contrasting the fishermen to their counterparts, professional seamen. Their creative homemade diving equipment diverges from the heavy machinery used by the seafarers. Yet there are parallels that blur their differences – the extraordinary sights they witness in or on the sea, the constancy of the horizon.
