Documentary : For My Uncle - Filipino Life From a Philosopher's Perspective

For My Uncle - Filipino Life From a Philosopher's Perspective

I created the opportunity to film a personal documentary during my stay in the Philippines with my relatives. During the bulk of the editing process, I was overwhelmed by the amount of passion that was expressed from what I filmed during my interviews with my uncle and cousins, and have finished it out of respect and in humility for their aspirations for better lives, either in the Philippines or abroad.

The documentary covers an entire worldview of the Philippines as experienced and perceived by my uncle and cousins currently living there. In the end it can be seen as a call to more humble and grounded attitudes in our equally important and historically brief lives. You can view it in the following link below:
