The brother of the 2 women filmmakers abducted in Sulu waits for his sisters to come home. On June 22, Nadjoua and Linda Bansil were kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf group, while the two were on their way back to Jolo after filming a documentary on the coffee farmers of Sulu. Their brother, Mohammed Bansil, prays often. His world stopped, he says, at 7 in the evening of Saturday. A 35-year-old father of 3 and a spinner for music events, he says all he can do now is wait. “Like my heart stopped beating. Like my life stopped moving. You know, like your life is on pause. I have to stop working. My kids, I don’t get to talk to them anymore. I can’t sleep. I sleep 3 hours, I get a text message and I jump. My mind is flying all the time. My mind is with my sisters, my heart is with them. At any moment anything can happen.”
