I am very much honored that my short film, “To Manong Carlos”, is going to be screened alongside “One Generation’s Time: The Legacy of Silme Domingo & Gene Viernes”, a full-length documentary about the legacy and impact of the work and lives of Silme Domingo and Gene Viernes, two Filipino-American activists and fishing cannery union members who were murdered for their involvement in union reform and fighting for workers’ rights. International Examiner Seattle has the full story here.
One Generation’s time is narrated by Geo from Seattle-based hip-hop duo Blue Scholars. While I’m not sure if he’ll be attending the screening, Cindy Domingo (Silme’s sister), Ron Chew (author of the book that is the basis of the film), and Shannon Gee (the director of the documentary) will be around after the screening for a panel discussion. Please drop by our screening at Ark Lodge Cinemas on February 9, 2014, at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available here
