    You can’t imagine my level of excitement when I saw your surname and the name of my dad’s hometown,: Liliw, Laguna. I thought, “We are relatives.” I just needed one other bit of evidence: a glimpse of T. Pianing Graulty!
    Having said that, I am awaiting your film’s release with keen anticipation. Pls. keep me in the loop! Thanks!

    • Mara, my Mom told me about connecting with you. We are all very excited about it! Although finishing this film will likely take many more months, I will continue to post new videos, letters and pictures as much as possible. The best way to stay in the loop is to sign up for the email list here (top right corner) and become a fan of Home Unknown on facebook if you haven’t done so yet. Thanks for your support! Hope to meet you in person sometime in the future! Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Good to hear from you! I’m sure your mom has also mentioned that we’re twice related, as we belong to the same Guanzon clan of Farmacia de la Quinta, Quiapo & Villa Epifania, Sta. Rita, Pampanga. By the way, my sister Lana’s family lives a stone’s throw away from you in Montebello! Rest assured, I will keep abreast of your to-ings and fro-ings, and track the rapid ascendance of your star. More power to you!

    • Such a small world! I hope to see you out here in Montebello sometime soon! If you feel so inclined, please feel free to tell any of your Filipino friends or relatives to check out the Home Unknown website or become a fan on Facebook. The more support I build up within our community now, the more likely people will be to watch the film when it comes out. Thanks so much!

    These clips all remind me of my very first trip to the Philippines earlier this year in March. I know I should have taken video, but all I took were pictures. I chronicled 2 weeks of my travels with my friends, my visit to my mom’s home village, and my reunion with my aunts and uncles. But it seems like that time wasn’t enough for me to fully experience what I was missing out on these past 30 years. I am anticipating the showing of your documentary. I’ve been wanting to document my experiences as a reflection of those with similar experiences. You’ve captured the essence of that so well. You’ve renewed my inspiration to get my story told as well. Good luck with this project. If I can be of any assistance to this production, please know that you have a resource in San Francisco bay area. You can contact me with the e-mail I provided.

  4. Hey Steve—

    Watched the Oscar’s last night and led me to this website of yours. I must admit– I am excited to see the home unknown documentary simply because it will give way to more documentaries such as this from our Young Filipino Cinematographers.

    This documentaries are needed to bring dialogue in our community and to bridge the gap between the 1st generation and 2nd generation here in North America– I feel that there is soo much disconnect and I can’t wait to see what this documentary would do to many who seek their Filipino Identity.

    IT be awesome if we can interview you on our radio show here in Canada.

    • Hi Ian,
      Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I appreciate you checking out the Home Unknown website and for your kind message. I would be happy to talk to you and be interviewed for your radio show. Feel free to email me at dypiangs@yahoo.com and we’ll set something up.
