Mission: “The Invisible Immigrants – Filipino Americans, A force in Mainstream America” documentary will endeavor to capture, chronicle and preserve historical accounts of Filipinos who immigrated to the United States. Now the second largest immigrant group next only to Mexicans, Filipino Americans remain unrecognized and unheralded, this despite their incalculable contributions to American Society. The documentary will show when, why, and how the Filipinos came to this country. It will highlight the achievements and progress Filipino Americans have made in the United States, and how they contributed to the greatness of this country. This much needed research and documentation will make available to future Filipino American generations records of their forebears without which their heritage would be lost as they assimilate into the mainstream of American Society. This multi-faceted documentary seeks to stimulate Filipino American youth to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for their family culture and to understand their role in being an American.
