Still Image 1

A personal meditation about the experience of the Filipino diaspora. It explores both the physical and emotional spaces of many immigrants who are living in a state of exile in the US. The filmmaker documents his grandparents and his own assimilation to American life and pop culture to reveal a larger colonized mentality in a personal and historical context.
