A very heartfelt and touching documentary recently shown at our 2011 San Diego Asian Film Festival was Emma Rossi-Landi’s LEFT BY THE SHIP. If you missed out last Fall here’s another opportunity to view it this Sunday (07/08) at 11:30pm on KPBS.

The popular feature documentary program INDEPENDENT LENS will showcase Landi’s film which centers around the stories of four Filipino Amerasians who been left fatherless and receive no emotional or financial support from the ex U.S. Servicemen (mostly Navy Branch) who left them behind hence the desparaging label LEFT BY THE SHIP.
