Inalay ang ikalawang weekend ng “Array 360” film festival sa Los Angeles para sa mga pelikulang Pinoy at Filipino-American.
“I started this film series today, two films that do highlight US and Philippine relations, particularly the relations to the military there. I think a lot of time people concentrate on one ethnic group of people, but sharing stories that relate to immigration across different cultures, different ethnicities is important,” saad ni programming director Mercedes Cooper sa Balitang America.
“We’re the second-largest Asian American population in this country, and we are literally and virtually invisible, as far as the media is concerned. We have a deep connection in the country and there has not been reciprocal love, particularly in the way we’re portrayed, or not portrayed at all in the media,” dagdag nito.
Ilan sa mga tampok na pelikula ang “Gamugamo,” “Kakabakaba ka ba?,” “Yellow Rose,” at “Call Her Ganda ” na tungkol kay Pinay transgender Jennifer Laude na pinatay ni US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton.
Layon ng “Array 360” ng organisasyong Array Alliance na ibida ang mga pang-internasyunal na palabas na gawa ng kababaihan at people of color.
