Mi último adiós

A reading of Dr. José Rizal’s Mi Último Adiós, a poem he wrote on the eve of his execution by the Spanish colonial government for rebellion and sedition.

Part of my 2nd solo exhibition of the same title. The finnisage was at Ateneu del Raval in Barcelona, Spain, and the opening was at Åkkigalleria in Jyvåskylå, Finland.

A week in the paradise known as the Island of the Gods.



A short film about loss and learning to love again.

This was actually made for a school project on creating a brand identity for a fictional museum. See the original promotional video here.

Small-Time Corruption in Action

This is not the first time I’ve been extorted–a fairly usual occurrence in my country. However, it was the first time that the situation was captured on video then subsequently subtitled.

I have had several requests from news channels over the years to use this video and to do interviews as well. Several years later, a journalist told me that the traffic enforcer had already died.
