About The Oregon Premiere of “A Lot Like You”
“A Lot Like You takes us on a personal journey into the most vulnerable corners of a family history spanning generations and continents. This layered documentary starts with a familiar exploration of mixed-race identity as the narrator searches for her roots, but brings the discussion to surprising levels of personal and political self-awareness. Fresh and inspired, tender and uncommonly smart, A Lot Like You triumphs as an exemplary work of first-person documentary for the 21st century.”— Jury Statement for BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD
San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival
About Pete Droge
Pete Droge is a Pacific Northwest native and folk rock singer/songwriter from Vashon Island, Wa. Subtly beautiful and poignant in its own right, the score for Eliaichi Kimaro’s film, A Lot Like You, finds Droge blending folk-tinged acoustic guitar with ambient soundscapes, and even some re-working of material from his 2006 release, Under the Waves. The result is an intimate and cohesive marriage of picture and score. The soundtrack is available through Droge’s website. The artist will perform several tracks from the film soundtrack prior to the screening.
