Auraeus Solito

A man of two worlds, coming from a lineage of the ancient Palawanon shamans and growing up in the heart of Manila, amidst the slums, Auraeus Solito’s films reflect these diverse aspects of his being and environment. His first feature documentary, Sacred Ritual of Truth, is a personal rediscovery of his indigenous roots in Southern Palawan. His first fiction feature, The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros (2005), explores the spaces of his neighborhood, the slums of Sampaloc and won the TGLFF. His next two features, Tuli (2005) and Pisay (2007), bridge the worlds of magic and religion, tradition and modernity, science and art, youth and politics.
