"Naglalahong Pamana" is co-directed by Lucy Lavirotte, Jerrica Manongdo, Berna Sastrillo, and David Simantov-Levi. 

Panglima Kenisio Malasan is a traditional leader of a Palaw’an tribe. Through him, the tribe’s tradition is passed on to the next generation—a tradition rooted in the land. But the Panglima wonders how their way of life can endure in the face of relentless encroachment of palm oil plantations. In a poignant dialogue between father and son, the Panglima and his child share fears for the future of their tribe.
