The Cultural Center of the Philippines Arthouse Cinema celebrates Indigenous People's Month this October with free screenings of "Walai" by Adjani Arumpac, and "Kambalingan" by Terence Giourdan Gonzalves. 

The films can be watched for free until October 15 at CCP's Vimeo channel. 

The 60-minute "Walai" prods on the memories of four Muslim women who once lived in the infamous White House in Cotabato City. The documentary seeks narratives in "places...we tend to feel without history." It traces the past through the women's experience of what has happened inside the wrecked home-nostalgia and fear, loss and love, and birth and death.

"Kambalingan," meanwhile, is a short visual documentary on Marawi's beauty before its destruction during the Marawi siege, told through the recollections of Maranao refugees.

Visual artist Kristine Lim launched her second solo exhibition at the Manila Hotel last October 1.

Titled "Soar," the exhibit will run until October 30. It features 33 framed mixed media works, with several of them triptychs.

A Filipino Christian with an evangelical inclination, Lim considers herself as an "artist with a mission" as her faith and her patriotism serve as foundation for the art that she makes, while remaining true to her own personal life experiences.

With "Soar," she proposes a potential way to salvation, based on the guiding principles of her Christian faith.
