Synchronized Trailer from Corinne Manabat Cueva on Vimeo.

This is the trailer of my latest experimental documentary short completed in 2020 during the pandemic.

Inspired by Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 film, Koyaanisqatsi, SYNCHRONIZED is an experimental documentary short that embraces 5 queer women of color as they collectively reflect about their experiences living and thriving in Oakland. This will uncover their perspectives of what it means living in the Town, a city that’s ever-changing – from memories, dreams, concepts of home, and resiliency.

Like a mixtape, SYNCHRONIZED amalgamates their voices, natural landscape sounds, and unconventional Oakland imagery to encapsulate a unique representation that acknowledges how the personal and environment coexist together.
