Kinetic Inheritances

Sensuous images and euphonious music map a transpacific arkipelago of Filipina/o/x diaspora through the eyes and experiences of local Bay Area Pinoy filmmakers. Through these films, land, place, and body fold into a powerful record of diasporic expression. Histories of imperialism in the Philippines and racial disenfranchisement in the US find remediation in the proud, virtuosic work of these Filipino storytellers.


Expected Guests in Attendance: Director Pat Cruz, Producers Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales, Arlene Daus-Magbual, Roderick Daus-Magbual (Art of Work), and Director Eduardo Taylor IV (Regalo)
