LIGA Presents: HUGO A Hidden Past Revealed Film Screening

  • NoCo room 501 550 West 120th Street New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

October is Filipino-American History Month as well as Indigenous Peoples Month in the Philippines. In celebration of both, Liga Filipina of Columbia University is proud to coordinate with Bagong Kulturang Pinoy NY to present a screening of HUGO: A Hidden Past Revealed. Directed by Rhadem Camlian Morados, a documentary filmmaker and humanitarian aid worker in the Philippines, "HUGO" is a 36-minute documentary film about the bul-ul, a traditional and iconic Ifugao human-like wood carving from the northern mountains of the Philippines, and the various claims about its origin, use, and function. The award-nominated film seeks to unmask the true faces of one of the Philippines' most expensive artifacts, the bul-ul (or rice god). Following the screening, Director Rhadem will lead a Q&A and discussion, joined by fellow New York City based historians. TIME: 3:00PM LOCATION: Northwest Corner Building - Room 501 CHECK OUT THE TRAILER: Registration link for tickes to be posted soon
