plus independent film "The Game of Solitaire" by Dillon Delvo
The Little Manila Foundation advocates for the historic preservation of the Little Manila historic site in Stockton, California and provides education and leadership to revitalize our Filipina/o American community.
About the director:
Independent filmmaker Dillon Delvo, the son of a "Manong" (Filipino old timer), wrote, produced, edited, and directed this film as his thesis project for a Master's degree in Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University. His filmmaking debut is a deeply moving journey into the heart of a young generation searching for their roots. Moreover, it offers us a heart-wrenching and eye-opening perspective on the meanings of family, history, community, memory and place in Filipino American contemporary life.
