Film Synopsis: Delikado

Director: Karl Malakunas | Countries of production: Australia, Hong Kong, Philippines, United Kingdom, United States | Year: 2022 | Length: 94 min
Language: English, Tagalog with English subtitles | Age: 18+ years

A captivating journey into the El Nido forest, where a group of Filipino land defenders risk their lives fighting for environmental justice.

Delikado means ‘dangerous’ in Tagalog, and danger suffuses every frame of this riveting documentary following 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.

Content notes: Discussions of violence and drug use/trafficking; depictions of death, dead bodies, and grief.

Access notes: Mainly bright images; some explanatory dialogue in English but most dialogue in Tagalog; brief flash photography towards the end of the film; some abrasive sounds (chainsaws, gunshots).



Our friends at Lighthouse Books have put together specially-curated reading lists for a selection of films, inviting us to delve deeper into the issues explored in our line-up. Here you’ll find a list of books recommended by Jessica relating to Delikado which delves deeper into the historical and political context in the Philippines, as well wider issues of environmental justice in response to the film.


Beyond the Screen

Stay with us after the film for a special pre-recorded conversation to explore collective routes to environmental justice across borders, with guests Kara Magsanoc-Alikpala (Delikado‘s producer), Jessica Dator-Bercilla (Parabukas), and Cheng Pagulayan (Oxfam Philippines).

Booking Information

To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.


Graphic with turquoise background with the white Take One Action logo in the top left corner. White text top-right reads 'Sliding Scale Ticketing' and white text underneath reads 'How much should I pay?; £0-2: I find it difficult to meet everyday costs; £4-6: I can meet everyday costs but sometimes find it stressful to do so; £6-8: I can meet everyday costs; £10: I can comfortably meet my everyday costs and have savings too'
