SAN FRANCISCO, California — “Delano Manongs,” a documentary on the unsung role of Filipinos in the historic grape strike that led to the formation of the United Farm Workers union, received a rousing reception by large audience May 9 at a screening at the International Hotel Manilatown Center  on 868 Kearny Street.

Filmmaker Marissa Aroy held a Q&A about her film and the history it depicts. “Delano Manongs” will be screened in various cities and shown on public television. Manilatown Heritage Foundation President Tony Robles (shown in photo above) introduced Aroy and her film, which was well received.
