For many Filipinos, ‘home’ is a far-off country on the other side of the Pacific Ocean. For many Filipino Americans in San Diego, however, ‘home’ is a street.With its aroma of freshly baked pan de sal and cheerful sounds of Tagalog filling the air, Plaza Blvd is where Filipinos come together. Usually a trip to Plaza Blvd means a day at the markets, running errands; but for Nolan, Jocelyn, and Grandma, this place means so much more.
From America’s Finest City (San Diego, CA) and now residing in the Entertainment Capital of the World (Los Angeles), Cassandra Pimentel is a Filipina-American filmmaker navigating her way in the TV/Film Industry. Some of her director’s work include the web series, “It’s Not You, It’s Me” and a tinikling inspired short film, “Battle of the Sticks.” Cassandra strives to incorporate culture and diversity in her projects.
