I've been busy with a lot of other things in my life, so I am still in the process of editing my first full-length feature. "Where We Are Now" extends my personal video diary format to encompass the greater collective narrative of Filipino diaspora. My video camera, now dubbed “Enrique de Malaca”, becomes a vessel for my friends’ stories as it circumnavigates the world by courier. While Magellan’s westward circumnavigation is one of territorial conquest for the colonial powers, Enrique’s eastward circumnavigation is one of reclamation; of re-establishing broken ties and rebuilding the terrain of the Filipino collective psyche. Thank you to everyone who contributed to myKickstarterproject!


Music for the trailer is from incompetech.com.
