Saturday, July 19, 2014
WATCH Mindanao's foremost indie filmmaker and investigative documentarist John Paul Seniel as he challenges Atty. Inday Sara Duterte Carpio, whom he brought to the far-flung barangay of Titogob in Malamba, Marilog District to teach in a Day-Care Center with kids aged 2-4 years old! Only on iSYU & iSTORYA, airing Saturdays, over GMA regional stations in Davao region, General Santos City and Soccsksargen, Cagayan de Oro and Northern Mindanao.
Sheltered and born to a life of comfort, Inday Sara was principally exposed to big social problems as she went about her duties as former Mayor of Davao City. Now back into the private practice of Law, little does she know that she will be a teacher in pre-school – albeit just for a day.
It was a test of patience and perseverance for Inday Sara who admittedly that even if she personally assisted her daughter, Sharkie, in her lessons and assignments, taking care of several kids in day care was a class unto itself. Will she make the grade as Day-Care Center teacher?
And for the first time, in a one-on-one interview, Inday Sara tells all on the status of her relationship with her father, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. What do you think is her reaction if she were to see his half sisters and brothers?
For lovers of goat dishes, John Paul's trip to a small town in Kapalong, Davao del Norte will be a definite delight as he explores various recipes using kanding or goat meat, which were handed down from generation to generation. Get a virtual taste of traditional kilawin, prepared, cooked and presented the Kapalong way.
In the segment same episode, a school teacher turns reporter as she documents the distribution of school supplies to elementary pupils in her school through a selfie-type narrative that she herself taped. Expect more of these crowd-sourced vignettes about food, activities, cultural practices and other interesting facets of Mindanaoan life as told by Mindanaoans themselves.
These and other interesting stories like the haunted ancestral home of the Vegas in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental and the famous Tinalak fabric of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato will make your Saturday morning viewing a not only a visual but a cultural and aesthetic treat.
Watch the pilot episode of iSYU & iSTORYA this Saturday, July 19, 7 a.m.to 8 a.m. in GMA.
