Cave Canem: Poets on Craft - Tracy K. Smith and Patrick Rosal
At The New School for Public Engagement, April 26, 2012
"Under the American Sun"
Patrick Rosal was one of the writers for this film, an independently produced 30-minute documentary film that traces the epic post-World War II migration of Filipinos laborers to Guam.
The U.S. military recruited skilled laborers and professionals to help rebuild an island devastated by war, resulting in the initial 1946 influx of Filipinos to Guam. The recruitment process lasted for two decades, resulting in a migration of over 10,000 Filipino men and women to Guam.
Under the American Sun (Camp Roxas Film Project) tells the story of Filipino immigrants to Guam, the Ilonggos from Iloilo Province, who arrived in 1946 at Camp Roxas in Agat, Guam, after World War II as part of the military reconstruction effort. Their arrival and settlement laid the foundation for four generations of Ilonggos to become Filipino-Americans and part of the Guam community.
