Love Like Pearls

love-like-pearls-mom

In this documentary short, the Catedral brothers tell the story of how their parents met, got married and made it through hard times amidst moving from the Philippines to the United States, and from Los Angeles, California to Roswell, New Mexico. Using both new footage recorded by the filmmakers as well as footage from old home videos the brothers have crafted a different type of love story that celebrates their parents' 30th wedding anniversary while also documenting their larger family history. A cross-generational Filipino-American exploration of relationship, identity, faith and migration, "Love Like Pearls" is a specific story that highlights more general feelings related to the difficulties and joys of family life.
