About the Artist

Local filmmaker and photographer Brian Muña is a Guam International Film Festival (GIFF) awardee, best known for his short films, “Luther” and “Plastic Bag.” His work explores the ways in which visual mediums can convey emotionality and the human experience.

Workshop participants will be able to choose and respond to a prompt (including the following prompts below) to create a unique visual story:

  • We all belong to the wider Guam community and various intersecting communities within it — explore one of these communities, taking a closer look at how it contributes to the historical, cultural, etc. landscape.
  • Choose a current social issue in Guam and explore how it affects you and/or your family (mentally, physically, spiritually, economically, professionally).
  • Visually explore your meaning of place whether in Guam, the larger Micronesian/Pacific region, the US or beyond.
  • Visually explore the meaning of community whether in Guam, the larger Micronesian/Pacific region, the US or beyond.

Workshop Materials:

  • Your mobile phone or recording device of your choice
