Toxic Mango

This film tells the incredibly heart-rending and fantastically forbidden legend of the Toxic Mango that bestows a multitude of lessons to all brave citizens of the new planet Alibuhod. Guima and Aras are ill-fated lovers in this sardonic tale of fruit and worldwide genocide. One day, a black mango suddenly appears on Guima and Aras’ tree; “to eat or not to eat”, that was their question. Toxic Mango is a black and white film that ruminates over a dystopic future when the effects of the oil spill tragedy have reached nightmarish proportions.
