Mindanao is a 2019 Philippine drama film directed by Brillante Mendoza starring Judy Ann Santos and Allen Dizon. Mixing myth and social realism, animation and live-action, director Brillante Mendoza delivers his strongest work, and his most accessible, in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival with ‘Mindanao.’ It is the story of Saima, a Muslim woman who is caring for her four-year-old daughter, Aisa, while her husband is a combat medic in the midst of the battle in the jungles of Maguindanao.
