While telling the story of his family, Tahimik also introduces us to Filipino history and geography, moving seamlessly from the personal to the political. This epic diary film spanning the 1980’s, not only document overseas vacations, and children’s first steps, –and even a ride with Dennis Hopper in his old Cadillac– but also earthquakes and hurricanes, the rise of the People Power movement, the deposing of Ferdinand Marcos, and the accession to power of Corazon Aquino. As Christopher Pavsek puts it, “I Am Furious Yellow masterpiece shows us how to be furious at all the injustice in the world but also how to face that injustice with the utmost joy.”
