About the Film:
Part of the Filipino Film Festival 2017
Directed by Sunshine Lichauco de Leon and Suzanne Richiardone. Philippines. 2016. Tagalog with English subtitles. 60 mins.
A young American woman leaves her country and all security behind to begin an adventure in the Philippines—and ends up witnessing the birth of a nation, a cruel war, an occupation, and reconstruction. Jessie Lichauco is a striking personality who knew no boundaries and flew far ahead of her times, without regard to sex or society. Her story of a century well-lived is a journey through a century of love, war, and discovery.
Special guests: Sunshine Lichauco de Leon and Suzanne Richiardone will speak after the film.
Curiosity, Adventure, and Love screens with The Sakada Series.
