Kung Saan Man Tayo (Wherever We May Be) Film Screening & Panel Discussion

February 9, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Online Add to Calendar

This February 4-9 (Fri-Wed), we are excited to present a virtual screening of our very own Adrian Alarilla (PhD Candidate, History)'s film, Kung Saan Man Tayo (Wherever We May Be). The Filipino émigré’s identity is a dynamic one, constantly changing and adapting to one’s adopted community, while at the same time attempting to compromise with one’s responsibilities with their family and with their Filipino culture. This documentary explores the stories of some of these 21st century Filipino émigré who used to be state scholars but have since followed other opportunities abroad. As these friends send a video camera to each other by courier and share their stories, they open up about adulthood and moving away, and teasing out larger themes such as the Philippine’s labor export economy, nationalism, and internationalism, as they search for themselves and their place in the world wherever they may be. Note: The Vimeo link will be made available via social media/our website from 12am HST, Feb 4. This will culminate with a panel discussion with filmmakers Adrian Alarilla and Kenneth Cardenas at 2:00pm HST, Wednesday, February 9, 2022. Moderated by Maria Natividad I. Karaan (PhD Candidate, English, UHM). More info here: https://www.cseashawaii.org/events/kung-saan-man-tayo-wherever-we-may-be-film-screening-and-panel-discussion/
