Every Day is a Holiday – Jury’s Stellar Award
57 min. by Theresa Loong, New York, NY.

Growing up in suburban New Jersey, Chinese-American filmmaker Theresa Loong knew little about her father's past. One day, she discovered his secret diary, written when he was a teenager and POW in a Japanese work camp during World War II. In it, he vowed to make 'every day a holiday' if he survived. “Every Day is a Holiday” tells the painful but life-affirming story of her father's unlikely journey, from Chinese Malay teenager and Japanese POW, to merchant seaman, Veterans Affairs doctor and naturalized citizen of the country that liberated him:  the United States.  Using intimate conversations, rare archival footage and his wartime diary, the film traces how, through sheer strength of will, Paul Loong overcomes the horrors of war and obstacles as an immigrant.

Theresa Loong is an award-winning multimedia artist, filmmaker, interactive media professional and educator whose work has been exhibited at the SVA, Sala de Exposiciones, Teriennale di Milano and Circulo de Bellas Artes. Read more about 33rd Black Maria Film and Video Festival Tour - Program 1
