Ira Famarin

Anong Ulam Tita?’ is a short film about my appreciation and admiration of my Tita’s (Aunt) cooking skills and her power in the kitchen. The film takes you through my feelings of delight, nostalgia, belonging and renewal as Tita’s cooking became my source of refuge during times of isolation. Tita’s cooking made me ponder about my Filipina-ness and the strength that lies in our own womanhood and identity. Through this film, I hope to remind all Filipinx womxn the power and strength that they have within them.
