“The Aswang Phenomenon”


We suspect that, without “Google Alerts”, this one would have passed us by:

Canadian filmmaker Jordan Clark first encountered the aswang in Wrye Martin and Barry Poltermann‘s 1994 film “Aswang.” Six years after seeing the film, Clark visited the Philippines, where he observed how Filipinos were both religious and superstitious. Wanting to understand how these two seemingly contradictory beliefs could be held at the same time, he began to research on Philippine folklore, and again came across the aswang.

This is the intro for the documentary film “The Aswang Phenomenon” – an exploration of the aswang folklore and its effects on Philippine society., produced by High Banks Entertainment Ltd.

UPDATE: They have over 2 million views on Youtube. I suspect that is more than have ever seen our film!
