KM trains to be filmakers!

On Saturday, Nov. 5th, several members of the Cultural Committee got together to examine how the personal is political in a hands-on video workshop. We talked about the relationship between art and activism, looked at the inspiring artwork of Filipina-Canadian artist Lani Maestro, and shared our experiences of forced migration, racial profiling, and other struggles faced in society. Participants became interviewers, videographers, and performers as they shared their experiences and hopes on film.

With the goal of using expression and creation to raise awareness of these ongoing struggles, our video will become a recruiting and educating tool for other Filipino youths and to the greater community. Stay tuned for the screening of the video at a theatre near you!
