Video of the Day: Kinabuhi – A Portrait of Filipino Coconut Farmers

kinabuhi

Filmmaker Danny Cooke’s short documentary, Kinabuhi, is a beautiful portrait of a group of Filipino coconut farmers whose livelihood is in doubt. Plenty of gorgeous shots in this short documentary to draw you right in. I was immediately struck by how dangerous these farmers jobs are, and there is just something so satisfying about watching people with a mastery of very specific skills. The man in the image above is casually climbing a tree cutting little footholds as he goes.

Watch Kinabuhi below.
