Our screening will bring together Asian American film-makers, Asian American historians, and Larry Itliong’s personal friends to discuss and relate their experiences to the larger community. Delano Manongs Director Marissa Aroy will be present to share her vision on the creative process of filming. Never before heard commentary will come from activist Rey Pascua who travelled to Delano in his youth to work with Filipino Labor leaders. Richard Gurtiza will also be on our panel to illuminate the Seattle relationships with Filipino American labor.

The event will take place at the Hing Hay Coworks, a new community and entrepreneurial space from SCIDPDA located in the heart of Chinatown-International District.

Through the film screening, artist presentations, speaking panel, and community discussion we will increase awareness and collective community growth that will bring interaction across Seattle in the Asian Pacific American communities.
