All That Glitters is BronzeDirected by Jinji Sayson
“All That Glitters Is Bronze” is a love letter to the Philippine tradition of Kulintang, which was once nearly wiped out by colonization. Around the Bay Area in California, a local band called Kulintang Dialect is keeping the tradition alive. This short documentary offers a glimpse of the cosmos through clips of performances interspersed with interviews from the band.
