\n\u201cUuwi na si Udong", an internationally acclaimed story on children caught in an endless cycle of debt repayment, airs this Saturday night on Sine Totoo. <br rn\/><br rn\/>Hosted and written by Kara David and produced by Lloyd Navera, with breathtaking videography by Kikoy Rapadas, \u201cUuwi" was a finalist at the 2007 New York Festivals for television and film. <br rn\/><br rn\/>The documentary \u2013 which first aired on I-Witness \u2013 tells the story of Udong, a 10-year old who travels every year by sea from Aklan to a sugarcane plantation in Batangas to help pay off his family\u2019s debt. <br rn\/><br rn\/>As little as he is, Udong works alongside the adult sugar workers\u2026 cutting rows of sugarcane with a sharp knife. Because he has never known school, Udong dreams only of taking on the burden of his aging sakada father. <br rn\/><br rn\/>But even after months of working, Udong and his brothers and father barely reduce their debt and again have to borrow to survive the months until the next harvest. Until the debt is repaid, Udong may never truly be able to return home. <br rn\/><br rn\/>In an interview with Sine Totoo\u2019s Howie Severino, Kara David shares why she has a soft spot for stories on children. She explains how she found Udong's story and gives an update on what happened to the boy after the documentary aired for the first time. <br rn\/><br rn\/>Sine Totoo provides another unforgettable TV viewing experience with \u201cUuwi na si Udong", this Saturday night at 11:45 pm over GMA-7.
