    The docu-film has had screenings in the Philippines. Wouldn't it be great to have a screening in Chicago? I am sure all of us here in Illinois would love to see this. Is there any way we can organize and arrange a screening here? Mr. Jay Ignacio's terms is actually simple. I tried writing to the Philippine Consul but didn't get a reply. I guess they're not interested to host it.

    I've already put the bug in Jay Ignacio's ear about doing a circuit tour through Chicago as the feed back I get from other FMA forums, it is a distinct possibility. But it has to be a set commitment, none of the half ass promises that does not materilize.. Jay financed all of this project out of his own pocket, so you can see where this is a determining factor..

    I actually had a forwarded message from the Philippine Consul of Chicago. It seems they are considering screening this film during the Filipino American History Month (FAHM) or at the Chicago Filipino American Film Festival (CFAFF).

    Would anybody be interested to help give it a little more push?
