(THIS FILM WAS PART OF OUR 2023 FESTIVAL LINEUP AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE SLAMDANCE CHANNEL) A Guide For When Immigrants Become Ancestors features references to Selena Quintanilla, Larry Itliong, Google Translate, and great-grandfathers. Pairing personal experience with poetry, the film paints an intimate portrait of a fourth-generation Mexican Filipino American, as they navigate what it means to inherit an identity rooted in cultural memory.
