AsiaLENS Film Screening: Pinoy Sunday

Start Date: Nov. 13, 2012
Time: 7:00 PM

(Spurlock Museum, Knight Auditorium, 600 S. Gregory Street, Urbana, IL) In the award-winning, independent film Pinoy Sunday, director Wi Ding Ho tells the story of two Filipino migrant workers and their journey across Teipei. When factory workers Manuel and Dado find an abandoned couch on the sidewalk it begins a day of misadventures and chance encounters as they attempt to carry their prize back to their cramped dormitory. In the course of their travels they meet a cast of characters representative of the various means of life in an industrializing city, as well as find moments of respite during which they reminisce about the homeland they have left behind for new opportunities. Wi Ding Ho deftly puts a light touch on a story about the difficult realities of overseas foreign workers in Teipei.
