Biyaya ng Lupa is my favorite Filipino film. I love this movie because I think it represents us very well. It shows the values we hold dear the most, and also our negative ones. And the movie looks and feels very Filipino, like an Amorsolo painting that came to life, albeit in black and white. Written by Celso Al Carunungan, Biyaya ng Lupa is a national treasure that deserves the world's attention.
