Sowing Seeds (2000)

Film type: FULL LENGTH

A deceiving first look leads one to believe that Sowing Seeds is just another one of those sociological studies on “Asian brides.” But the film is less about Yamagata wives than about the filmmaker’s own professional identity crisis. In her eyes, the modest but resilient Filipinas in the film transform from being the subject of a study, to active agents who unintentionally revert the gaze.
