GAMU-GAMO

"In the Philippines, legends say that when someone dies, the spirit roams the earth as a moth before moving on to the afterlife."

While struggling to write her dissertation, a young filipino grad must reunite with her family following the death of her lola—and consequently faces the truth she’s been kept in the dark from for so long.

[ LIEZEL ]

25-35 years old, Filipino. Liezel works as an English Literature instructor at a university. Has a strong sense of self, so much so that she butts heads with her immigrant mother. Her intellect shines when teaching, but is bogged down when she faces her very judgmental family members. She’s talented, yet frustrated—her inability to pen her dissertation weighs heavily on her conscience. We included a “10 year” age range, but ultimately we want someone who can pull off being mature and confident as a teacher, but feel very childlike when they are around their family. A sense of “agency” is missing when she goes back home.
