Walking Iron
Walking Iron explores homophobia in a working class setting: a gay iron worker outs himself on the construction site and to his straight best friend. Seen from the iron worker gang's perspective, it examines homosexuality from the point of view of sympathetically drawn heterosexual working class men, forced to confront their own feelings about homosexuality, friendship and loyalty.
Woman From The Other Side Of The World
The disillusionment of escaping a troubled past in an adopted culture emerges when Emiliya, a seemingly Americanized Filipina, encounters Ines, her new yaya (nanny) and a "Woman From the Other Side of the World." Their oft comical confrontations gradually darken to reveal the world as well as the secrets of Emiliya's past.
