‘I’ve Learned to Rock the Boat’: Ramona Diaz on Bold Storytelling

Ramona Diaz is unapologetic. While filming her latest documentary in the Philippines, she boldly wears pink, the color of progressive candidate Leni Robredo’s presidential campaign, amidst the Marcos dynasty’s resurgence. This defiance, born from a childhood under martial law, fuels her documentary films that uncovers truths that linger in the shadows.
