Eseel Borlasa and I met as programmers for the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and are transitioning into storytelling. In 2015 we produced the Virtual Reality (VR) documentary Walking With Grace with Form follows Function and Visual Communications. Our interest in short flags starts with the performers who look like they could be our sisters, cousins, Ates, and Manangs. We want to explore how Filipino Americans dominated and continue to dominate this sport. We want to celebrate this unique thread of the Filipino American experience.
Eseel and I are in full pre-production mode and are hosting a shortflags meet up at FPAC this year. Come by and represent for your school! Share your stories with us!
