WFC Micronesia: Who I Am

This documentary short is on Youtube.

It’s more of an American film than a Micronesian film, but it’s about a “student missionary” (?) who’s stationed in Micronesia. (He wanted to go to South Korea or China or basically anywhere in that area, but (surprise surprise) those places were too racist to accept him, so he ended up in Pohnpei.)

I suspect that this may have been produced as an inspirational video for other “missionaries”, and as such I think it’s probably successful? It’s shot pretty well, and the editing is mostly fine, but there are some really awkward bits, too.

So, I dunno. It’s a kinda pointless thing to watch.

Who I Am. Andrew Lloren. 2015. Micronesia.
