This is a celebration of the life and work of Edgardo "Egay" Navarro (October 6, 1950 – January 30, 2013)

A cameraman and cinematographer, Edgardo Navarro has documented some of the country’s most historical and cultural events in the last two decades, producing documentaries and capturing moments alongside different journalists and filmmakers in the art world and in media.

He has produced more than a hundred documentaries with Howie Severino in I-Witness, and has worked alongside other local and foreign filmmakers and journalists such as, Nonoy Marcelo in “The Real Makoy”, Michael Brauner for Austrian Television, Gerry Herena, D.A. Pennebaker, Christopher Morris and other media outlets such as, Probe Team and Reuters. A former chief cameraman for Worldwide Television News and cinematographer for “Hunghong sa Yuta”, one of the many footages contained in his archives are that of the Baguio Arts Festival, EDSA Revolution, Martial Law, the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, and even the 1970 Pope Paul VI assassination attempt.

Whether it was for work or play, his passion for video can be seen through the wide variety of personalities he has met and worked with. Many of them were musicians and artists, such as Santiago Bose, Jaime de Guzman, Roberto Villanueva, Ramon Obusan, Benedicto Cabrera, Pepe Smith, Pepito Bosch, Jun Lupito, Rolly Maligad of Cocojam, Joey Ayala, Pinikpikan, Popong Landero, Jose Maceda, Jon Red, Ian Victoriano, and various other cultural workers.

From politicians to rebels, vigilantes and shamans; from tribes to cultural works, and artists and musicians; his work remains alive through his footages that are kept and archived in film centers and his home in Horseshoe Village. Egay’s enthusiasm for film has allowed him to build a collection of some of the most detailed visual accounts of the real life events that remain significant to this day.

A portion of the money collected will be donated to the Navarro film archive.
