Tubbataha: A Natural Treasure

Director: Don Falsario II

Producer: Aileen Ilumin

Producer Company:





A short documentary/narrative film on the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park,a UNESCO-inscribed World Heritage Site in the Philippines. It is recognized for its outstanding universal value in the conservation of marine biodiversity and for its exceptional beauty. This film is a sensorial take of this diving experience - that the world underneath is so different from the one above it yet is familiar.


The film aims to show this beauty, how precarious its state, and the
need to protect it. The film hopes to encourage the viewers, who are
mostly scuba diving tourists, to observe regulations as their
contribution to its conservation.
