The Aswang Phenomenon
The Aswang Phenomenon-Friday, November 1, 7:00 pm, Center for Inquiry-Indiana, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis.
This is a very high quality documentary about the Aswang, a Filipino boogie man that resembles a cross between a witch and a vampire. What makes this so fascinating is that this is not something out of history; this is a current beliefs held by adults and children across the Philippines. The movie proposes possible origins for this belief and has some brief discussion of the clash between Christianity and the native cultures.
