Unshaken by centuries of colonial conquest and the changing tides of occupation, the lusong has endured to heal and feed the people of the land, and to impart a sacred lesson of survival. Lina’la’ Lusong captures important aspects of traditional culture, shows the Chamorro (Guam) experience through different eras of colonization, and is a call for progress through modern times.
Produced by participants of the PIC Micronesian Filmmakers' Workshop in Guam.
