10 Directors. 10 Hours. 10 New Work-In-Progress Showings.
The Untitled Filipino-American Project explores whatidentity means to the Filipino-American. Caught between the Philippines, acountry with rich indigenous history (as well as a history of colonialization)and the United States of America, a country that, for many Filipinos offered apromise of a better future in exchange for assimilation, where do Filipinosfind themselves in this tapestry of history and country? By usinginterviews, found text, song and dance, The UntitledFilipino-American Project seeks to unveil what it means to bethe children of immigrants from a country that is as beautiful as it is complicated.
