Watch an excerpt of the short animation / spoken word film, MIGRATIONS (35mm / 7:50), commissioned by the City of Pasadena in 2006. It explores the Manila Galleon Trade of the 17th – 18th centuries that ran from China – Manila – Acapulco and began a vast transnational migration. I wrote and performed the poetry, artist Alyssa Sherwood created the visuals, DJ Highend produced the music. The film was an entry in the Nashville International Film Festival (2008) and is showing this October at the Chicago Children’s Film Festival as part of an evening of shorts.
