Scottish Premiere

Delikado means ‘dangerous’ in Tagalog, and danger suffuses every frame of this riveting documentary. It follows the fearless Filipino ‘para-enforcers’ confronting illegal loggers in El Nido, Palawan – one of the most fatal places in the world to be a land defender.

A gripping dissection of systems of political violence and economies of exploitation, Delikado bears urgent witness to those who take their lives in their hands every time they step into the forests of El Nido, viscerally capturing the indescribable risk and desperation they face as the only protectors of the Philippines’ last ecological frontier.

Screening as part of Take One Action Film Festival. Take One Action is an ad-free festival: please take your seats in the cinema at the advertised start time.


We are delighted to share an introduction from Tata - one of Delikado's protagonists. Stay with us after the film for a special pre-recorded conversation to explore collective routes to environmental justice across borders.

Presented in collaboration with Oxfam Scotland and Christian Aid Scotland.
