“The Great Pinoy Boxing ERA”
By Corky Pasquil
A documentary back to the glory days of Pinoy boxing greats, D. Cabanella, Pancho Villa, Speedy Dado, and Ceferino Garcia, to name a few.

By Marissa Aroyo
“Delano Manongs: Forgotten Heroes of the UFW” sheds light on the Pilipino farm labor leaders who played a major role in organizing the United Farmworkers. The program follows filmmaker Marissa Aroy’s journey as she puts together the story of her grandfather’s role in the Pilipino community in Delano, and what the strikes meant to him and to the rest of the community at that time.
When union leaders Larry Itliong, Phillip Vera Cruz, Pete Velasco, and Andy Imutan came into town, how did things change in the small agricultural town?
“Game of Solitaire”
By Dillon Delvo
In "The Game of Solitaire," a young Filipina American college student (Rinabeth Apostol) comes to terms with her painful past by visiting Rudy (Jerry Paular), a Manong (old timer) who imigrated to Stockton in the 1920s.
In a touching story about the generation gap, the girl and the old man find common ground and connection.
