MANILATOWN IS IN THE HEART and Selected Shorts
MANILATOWN IS IN THE HEART
Directors: Emiko Omori and Curtis Choy
58 minutes (2008)
Feature film
Al is the link to the disappearing manong generation, the bachelor society that came from the Philippines in the 1920s and 30s as workers. We accompany Al in his wanderings in San Francisco's Chinatown and Manilatown while he tells the manong's tales of isolation, struggle, and merriment. MANILATOWN IS IN THE HEART was a finalist for the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.

HOW WAR ENDS
Director: Rock Chang & Scott Eriksson
12 minutes (2012)
Short film
Eighteen years after Khmer Rouge, two Cambodian brothers, one strong enough to be able to now live with his traumatic memories (Rithy) and the other unable to function in life because of the trauma (Bunthon), each argue their very different ideas about how to deal with Bunthon's empty painful life. HOW WAR ENDS was an official selection of the Oceanside International Film Festival, NewFilmmakers L.A. Sunset-Gower Studios, Poppy Jasper Film Festival, Boston Asian American Film Festival, International Film Festival Manhattan, and Laughlin International Film Festival.

MOTHER & CHILD
Director: Jocelyn Saddi-Lenhardt
5 minutes (2012)
Short film
Ligaya, a once vibrant, young Filipina woman, struggles through an identity crisis when her estranged husband announces his imminent return to the States. Torn between her traditional mindset and her self-reliance, she becomes angry and resentful at her son, who may be the only logical piece in her fractured world. MOTHER & CHILD won best short film at the Chicago Filipino American Film Festival

THE APPRENTICE
Director: Mahen Bala & John W. J. Cho
5 minutes (2011)
Short film
Since the 1940s, Low Kok Kee and his print shop have been faithfully serving the photography and printing needs of the local community in Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. With the advent of the digital age and a fluctuating appetite of the young and hip, Low is philosophical about his business in decline.
