Palawan appears to be an idyllic tropical island. Its powder-white beaches and lush forests have made it one of Asia’s hottest new tourist destinations. But for a tiny network of environmental crusaders and vigilantes trying to protect its natural resources, it is more akin to a battlefield.
Delikado follows Bobby, Tata and Nieves, three magnetic leaders of this network, as they risk their lives struggling – against the odds – to stop corrupt politicians and businessmen from destroying the Philippines’ “last ecological frontier”. Director Karl Malkunas is a filmmaker who lived in the Philippines for 8 years while working as Manila Bureau Chief for Agence French-Presse. Delikado offers a story of courage and resilience to inspire others into action.
