Bibingka explores how recipes tell stories of migration and cultural survival through the lens of Filipino foods. Behind every recipe there are countless memories that allow us to reclaim our connection to the land, family, and home, which awakens our senses to keep the legacy of our traditional foods alive.
Kay Cuajunco is a Filipina-American activist, educator, and filmmaker currently based in Oakland, CA. Her work explores themes of migration, resistance, and decolonization. As granddaughter of Filipino farmers, she reclaims her connection to land through her work organizing for food justice, and finds healing and creative inspiration cooking for cultural survival. Her first film “Roots of Struggle,” an anti-imperialist love story revealing the intimate violence of the military-industrial-complex on queer youth, premiered at the Queer Women of Color Film Festival in San Francisco and was awarded best short at the 2013 Oakland LGBTQ Pride Film Festival.
