Filipinos in the Canneries
This film depicts the history of canneries on Kodiak, in particular the correlation between work at Kodiak’s canneries to the demographic increase of Filipinos in Kodiak in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. This film was shot and produced by 10th grader Max M. as part of the Kodiak’s Filipino Community Stories project, a collaborative effort between the Baranov Museum, the Filipino American Association of Kodiak, the Kodiak Island Borough School District, and Media Action.
