Fall of the I-Hotel


I worked alongside my long-time creative partner Victor Zapanta in close collaboration with the Manilatown Heritage Foundation to digitally restore "The Fall of the I-Hotel." As Filipino American artists, we recognized the documentary's significance in revealing hidden histories and empowering future generations to connect with their heritage. Our aim is to ensure that the resilience and stories of marginalized communities, depicted in films like this, are remembered and resonate for years to come, inspiring empathy and catalyzing positive change in society.

The restoration premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival in May of 2023.
