  5. "Ah Kung in the Philippine Jungle, 1945" is a short cinepoem produced by Kenji C. Liu about his Taiwanese grandfather, who was deployed to the Philippines by the Japanese Imperial Army during WWII, and had to surrender to US forces. The cinepoem explores the ambiguities of being a soldier recruited from a Japanese colony to fight in another Japanese colony.

    The music for this video poem is a digital collaboration between Kenji C. Liu (poet - LA), Tako Oda (berimbau - Oakland), Marië Abe (accordion - Boston), and Heidi Andrea Restrepo Rhodes (vocalist - NYC). Liu contacted the musicians with a length, time signature, and key, and each contributed audio files, which Liu mixed with other audio samples. All video is free from the Internet Archive and Mazwai.

    Published in Issue 59 (June 2014) of The Collagist. Read the poem at http://thecollagist.com/the-collagist/2014/6/6/a-kung-in-the-philippine-jungle-1945.html
