Enrique has been shipped out!
In this latest film I’m making, my video camera, now dubbed “Enrique D’ Camera”, will become a vessel for my friends’ stories as it circumnavigates the world by courier. Starting off in Seattle, Enrique is being sent one by one to friends all over the world, traveling further until it reaches the Philippines, and back to Seattle. While Magellan’s westward circumnavigation was one of territorial conquest for the colonial powers, Enrique’s eastward circumnavigation will be one of reclamation; of re-establishing broken ties and rebuilding the terrain of the Filipino collective psyche.

“Colonization is an apparatus of violence. Decolonization is the fight to dismantle its apparatuses, its inner workings, its structures, its constitution and its effects. It is waging nonviolence rooted in our teachings and lifeways; it is radical action borne of love for all of our people and nations; it is, as Taiaiake Alfred has suggested, reclaiming ‘freedom from fear’.”

Project Reconnect has experienced such great generosity and enthusiasm from dear friends and relatives just this past month. Because of you, we’re very, very close to our funding goal. This collaborative project will attempt to show how each small, personal, supposedly insignificant story is ultimately part of something bigger. In just the same way, each small token counts, and will come a long way: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1207790595/project-reconnect-where-we-are-now
