May We Know Our Own Strength
An art film depicting Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya’s work of the same name


‘May We Know Our Own Strength’ is an abstract and expressionistic narrative document centered around artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya’s similarly-titled piece exploring collective healing after sexual assault within AAPI communities, created tragically in the wake of the Atlanta spa shootings. In the spirit of the installation itself, ‘May We Know Our Own Strength’ recreates the process of trauma, the hurdles of healing, and the strength that can be found in sharing and community.
