Pag-aatang (2023)

Through "Pagaatang," Ea Torrado intertwines personal narratives with ancestral reverence and mythological elements. The film embraces the concept of the Mother in its myriad forms — from Mother Nature, to the cherished bonds with biological mothers and grandmothers, to Ea's connection to the coastal town of La Union in the Philippines. Which over the course of four transformative years, has become more than just a place; it has grown to embody the essence of a mother figure for her.
