Nakabingwit: First Comes Love

Written and Directed by Joella Cabalu

Produced by Teri Snelgrove

A documentary that delves into the heartache and tenderness of Canadians of Filipino descent as they negotiate the cruel optimism of Canadian multicultural policy. Nakabingwit combines an observational approach with a 90s inspired pop cultural sensibility to follow three Filipinos and their white partners, each in a distinct phase of a romantic relationship.
