Roqayah is off this week, but Kumars is joined for a very special After Hours interview with director, cinematographer, teacher and activist Steven De Castro, whose new film Revolution Selfie: The Red Battalion is now streaming on Means TV.
Steven and Kumars touch on Steven’s early career including his debut feature Fred Ho’s Last Year, a documentary about his personal friend, the experimental jazz musician Fred Ho, before laying out the historical context of US colonial rule in the Philippines and Filipino resistance to empire both at home and in the United States. Steven and Kumars then discuss Revolution Selfie, an experimental documentary for which Steven embedded with the New People’s Army, the military wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines.
