Brides of SuluDVD
Drawn by their forbidden passions, a beautiful Mohammedan Moro princess and her lover, a pagan pearl diver, defy religious and moral laws and flee her arranged marriage to another. The ruler of a primitive Philippine Island has promised his daughter Benita's hand to a nearby noble chief. As the town prepares for Benita's planned betrothal, Asan sneaks into the royal compound and steals away with his beloved. Vowing to make the infidel pay with his life, the inflamed tribesmen launch a furious pursuit to recapture their princess. Beautifully filmed on location, using local Moro tribesmen, this forgotten 1934 film provides a rare glimpse into a lost culture.
