It's rare that we are treated to a movie that attempts to tell a story of the journey of a basic commodity. Let alone reemphasize the sociocultural significance of that commodity.
Pureza: The Story of Negros Sugar, a movie by Jay Abello, is a movie that attempts to not only document the travels and travails of Negros Sugar, but also shows us why the sugar trade is deeply tied to the Negrense -- And Filipino -- identity.
Want to know the story behind those sweet crystals we flavor our morning coffee, lunchtime calamansi juice, and afternoon iced tea with?
Then this is the movie to watch this week!
