A team of Filipinos will soon be presenting their film, a creative documentary about a young man and a young woman and their journey from the Philippines to Spain, at the Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona (CCCB). The team is composed of first and second generation Filipino migrants Rodel Juacalla, Ian Albert Pring Reyes, and Louie Simbe, under the direction of Kay S. Abaño.
This film is part of the innovative documentary film project called Aula Factoría Barcelona, an initiative of Audiovisuales Sin Fronteras in cooperation with the CCCB. The project aims to promote a new way of understanding documentary films and other film territories through an alternative approach to the creative and production processes. Its organizers believe that the documentary film form and other creative audiovisual forms are magnificent communication tools for showing the talents and the social commitment of various collectives based in Barcelona. The other 2 collectives participating in the project are teams from Pakistan and the Dominican Republic, both under the direction of Spanish directors Héctor Muniente and Jeffrey Frígula.
All 3 films of the Aula Factoría Barcelona will be screened in the CCCB Hall on the 31st of May 2011, at 8:30 p.m.. The directors and their teams will be there to present their works. You are all invited!
