Not Your Erotic


The blurb: A Filipino-American woman tries to find love but instead faces sexualization and fetishization due to the color of her skin
This short film is based on Jo Bulaong’s poem, “Not Your Erotic.” The short film is based on the behavior of non-POC men fetishizing and sexualizing Filipina women. As Jo continues to find love, she seems to find herself more and more in an uncomfortable situation. Instead, she is sexualized even though it is disguised as a compliment. Many women have experienced being sexualized more than once in their life and this has to be addressed.
