Meet Bulaw in I-Witness
(The Philippine Star) - August 28, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Howie Severino on Saturday takes viewers to the faraway tribal community floating on the crocodile waters of the Agusan River to meet its uncommon member.

She is called Bulaw, a 13-year-old albino girl who evokes mystery and even awe in her Manobo community. Some think she is a diwata or a child of the sun.

But she just wants to be a normal teenage girl in a culture that believes in rituals and magic.

The modern world is butting into this enclosed community. The first computers have arrived in the school, opening up fresh vistas of knowledge that may soon include the revelation that Bulaw’s condition has more to do with a medical condition than with magic.

I-Witness airs after To The Top on GMA 7.
