This film follows a delegation of Asian Pacific Islanders from North
America, Hong Kong organizers, garment workers, Korean farmers, trade
unionists and others through a turbulent week of mass mobilization in Hong
Kong against the World Trade Organization 6th Ministerial meeting last
December. As neoliberal globalization replaces traditional livelihoods
with low-wage factory and service work, farmers and craftspeople are
forced into doing migrant work in urban areas and foreign countries. From
China to the US, as exploitation and
repression intensifies, migrants are organizing and fighting back.
API dialogues explore the contradictions of globalization as neoliberalism
intensifies in Asia and all around the world. Personal tales reveal the
complexities of transnational identities, culture, class, and gender in
"finding home"-- focusing on our histories of migration and displacement.
API activists grapple with "international solidarity" and building
meaningful, accountable relationships with movements overseas, looking for
tangible ways to link our local organizing to global movements that will
topple neoliberalism and imperialism.
Q and A with filmmakers Puck and Handle to follow.
