In the course of doing research for an assignment in my MA course, I discovered the controversial documentary put together by Howie Severino, a known journalist who now works with GMA Network.
Severino’s documentary on a group of old women, called Lukayos, parading wooden phallusses after a wedding in a small town in the Philippines caused the suspension of the TV show that aired it.
Shown in GMA’s i-Witness public affairs program, the documentary was deemed obscene forcing the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board to suspend the show.
But Filipinos are creative and somehow some people have found a way to post these controversial film on You Tube. It was quite a long show, so it is divided into five parts.
Here’s the first part of the video. You will see the rest of videos in the same link. Below is part four of the video segment.
