He went from friend to enemy in a flash. In a flash of gold.
Bodong wanted to keep his discovery of gold to himself, and he was very careful to make sure the river remained a secret and his movements undetected as he went around.
He verified that the gold nuggets were legit, and got some good money for it. But there’s no way he would share his loot with his friend Alec, even though they were in the search together.
Alec is very suspicious of his avoidance and behaviour. Shadowing Bodong one day, he discovers his secret.
The angry confrontation ends in a flash — in a flash of blood, guns and gold.
Their greed was worth fighting for, dying for.
Bryan’s short film won Best Cinematography & Best Picture at the Mindanao Film Festival.
