In Our Being/Sa Aming Pagkatao (c. 2021, S8mm, digital) 

"In Our Being/Sa Aming Pagkatao" combines the perspectives of two queer people of colour, one from the Philippines and one from Canada, into one narrative body.

“In Our Being/Sa Aming Pagkatao” (2021) is an experimental autobiographical film that converges two queer people of colours’ perspectives from the Philippines and Canada into one narrative body. As a cross-continental virtual production, “In Our Being/Sa Aming Pagkatao'' explores themes of alienation, queerness, Afro-futurism, and the flux of self-concept through collage making and performance art.
