Storyboard Text

  • One afternoon, I was plowing our rice field with our carabao named Datu. I was barefooted. My pants, that were made from abaca fibers and woven on homemade looms, were rolled up to my knees. My bolo was at my side.
  • An American soldier was walking on the highway. When he saw me, he headed towards me. I stopped plowing and waited for him. I noticed he was carrying a half-pint bottle of whiskey. Whiskey bottles seemed part of the American uniform.
  • Hello, Joe!
  • I am sorry, Joe, There are no bars in this barrio.
  • Hello! My little brown brother.
  • Any bars in this town?
  • No, Joe. I am sorry. We do not drink whiskey.
  • Oh, hell! You know where I could buy more whiskey?
  • No, thank you, Joe. We, Filipinos are mild drinkers.
  • Here, have a swig. You have been working too hard.
  • I drink lambanog.
  • Yes, I drink, but not whiskey.
  • Well, don’t youdrink at all?
  • What the hell do you drink!?
