Here is the article from MP Exponent 1-30-11 issue

French TV features Bontoc culture
A team from France 3, a French government TV channel based in Paris, France, visited Bontoc last January 17, 2011 as part of a documentary on the Philippines.

Two journalists, Ait-habroouche Morad and Laila Agoram were set to get a story on Bontoc’s head hunting past. The setting for the documentary took place at Saint Vincent’s High School. Being a School of Living Traditions, the journalists covered the lecture on head hunting among the Bontocs by book author and retired English literature teacher, Mrs. Florence K. Chaokas.

Mrs. Chaokas gave a talk to the Social Studies IV class on Bontoc’s culture of headhunting. She traced the beginnings of head hunting, the reasons and finally the end of the practice in the early 1900s. Mrs. Chaokas emphasized to the class of Principal Julian Chumacog, that Christianity and education helped end the practice. To cap off the documentary, the students performed the Bontoc War Dance.

France 3 TV staff moved to Kalinga to follow on the story and end the documentary in Banaue, Ifugao.

Lucky me to have been offered to work with these French Journalists here in Paris to translate their interesting video documentations taken in the Philippines, particularly in the Cordillera. I must say, It's a new thing with new stuffs to learn. It's not the main job I do here but with my work experience in the media industry it's really a great oppurtunity to work with the field you immesely loved and enjoyed. The transcription of the Bontoc culture and the legacy of the headhunters (tatoos,descendants) which was taken in the barangay Bontoc Ili where Mr. Alex Fana-ang, the Barangay Chairman of Bontoc Ili gave a brief explanation about the practice of headhunting in the olden times. He further discussed the resolution about the peace pact treaty (pechen) between Bontoc and Kalinga.

The translation of the footages taken from Mountain Province, Ifugao and Kalinga took us two weeks to finished. The editing and mixing of background music and voice over is on its process. As I watched the editor does the final editing, I'm with great awe how well he works on the stuff. I can't barely wait with the whole story to be finished and published. But it will be all done in about two months.

French TV Channel 5 promised to give an original copyrighted CD for Saint Vincent's School aside from the copy to be given to the Mr. Joel Fagsao, the Chief Administrator of www.mountainprovince.net and Bontoc, Ili ay Kalalaychan Fan Page (facebook). The school will be informed when the documentary movie will be uploaded at the French TV Channel website.
