Kung Saan Man Tayo (Wherever We May Be) Filmmaker Panel Discussion
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.

Kung Saan Man Tayo (Wherever We May Be) will be screened virtually via Vimeo from Friday, February 4 to Wednesday, February 9, 2022. This will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmakers Adrian Alarilla (PhD candidate, History, UHM) and Kenneth Cardenas (PhD candidate, Geography, York University) at 2:00pm HST on Wednesday February 9, 2022.
