2017 Seattle Asian American Film Festival

Queer Transnational Love in the time of Social Media and Globalization

Directed by Adrian Alarilla

Shorts / USA / 2017 / Documentary, Found Footage / 20 mins / Tagalog with English subtitles


In this video study, the filmmaker analyzes the possibilities and unsustainability of queer, transnational love as hybridized Filipino/American subjects. Using found footage, he retraces the story of his love with the research subject in an effort to work through the trauma of ending a relationship, all the while revealing the larger socio-political structures in place that are keeping them from one another.
