About the Film:
Directed by Lola Quan Bautista. Guam. 2012. 30 min.
This half-hour educational documentary is shot in an intimate, backyard style. Breadfruit & Open Spaces gives a rare look into the personal stories and open living spaces of the Chuukese and Yapese people who live, work, and attend school on Guam, the land where they now grow and prepare their traditional foods. It explores their journey and challenge to hold their ground and find a voice on a new island, while maintaining their ties to their families on their home islands in the Federated States of Micronesia.
