While traveling through the more rural parts of the Philippines, you might happen upon children along the roadside “spider fighting”. Spider fighting, is the low-income alternative to cock-fighting in the Philippines, and involves people betting while two spiders duel on the edge of stick. Along our way through Twin Lakes National Park, we came across a pair of spider-fighters, and asked if we could document one of their fights.
While filming in the Philippines, we had a chance to drop into Cebu to join in the celebration of Sinulog. Widely cited as the Philippines largest festival, Sinulog attracts millions from across Asia to sing, dance and worship alongside Catholics across the country (Over 85 percent of the Philippines identifies as Catholic) celebrating the arrival of Christianity to the island nation. Check out the a few of our favorite photographs from the hugely colorful (and incredibly crowded) Philippine festival.
