In this Sundance film, Lynn, an aspiring country singer, and July, her trusty brown horse, endure an arduous descent along the Philippine highlands to make it on time to the city for the audition of her dreams. Lynn's journey leads her on a path where her indigenous identity is confronted by the unseen forces of the landscape’s colonial American past. One of our favorite films of the year.

Don Josephus Raphael Eblahan (b. 1996, Philippines) is an independent filmmaker born of Ifugao and Visayan descent. Eblahan’s works explore themes of trauma, spirituality, and nature told through the cosmic lens of post-colonial spaces and Indigenous identities. In 2021, Eblahan’s film HILUM won the Student Prize at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. THE HEADHUNTER'S DAUGHTER premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Short Film Grand Jury Prize.
