Queer Transnational Love in the time of Social Media and Globalization Winner for best LGBT at iChill Manila Int Film Fest!

Congratulations Queer Transnational Love in the time of Social Media and Globalization Winner for best LGBT at iChill Manila Int Film Fest!

In this video study, the filmmaker analyzes the possibilities and unsustainability of queer, transnational love for 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.
