API Women’s stories featured at LA Asian Pacific Filmfest
Taking us into the back stories of the often neglected painful lives and struggles of our Filipino migrant workers, Bells Ring, Mr. King brings caregivers out of the shadows and into our hearts. It is a wake up call reminding us of the need to take a stand with the backbone of our society - the workers who are taking care of our young and elderly and the immigrants who have sacrificed it all while providing us with much needed services. Bells Ring, Mr. King is a part of this year’s LA Asian Pacific Filmfest shorts program “Her Love,” and SiGAw is a proud community partner! Join us for the “Her Love” program on Saturday, May 4, 4:45pm at the Directors Guild of America 2, which will also feature Arrival, Doll, My Mother’s Jade, Voices, Deliver Her and Advantageous.
“It is truly a gift to know the love and care from a strong woman. She can be your aunt, your daughter or even your caretaker. The diverse points of view in this program show the breadth and depth of a woman’s love, resilience and heart.” — Eseel Borlasa
