Touching tributes to women in the family (a former activist mother, a grandmother with dementia), a probe at how labor contractualization can end, portraits of Mindanao, odes to a national artist and a beloved actor, and investigations on the marginalized (blind youth, urban poor, LGBTs). These are the themes of 2015’s best documentaries.
