When Melissa Ramos' parents went to visit the Philippines, she asked them to bring her old 8mm film video camera to capture their stay. Image: snapshot of Melissa Ramos' "Distant Memories"

This resulted in “Distant Memories”, a three- channel video piece currently showing at the Blacktown Art Centre. Distant Memories, she says,became a way to “re-write” the memories of her parents in the Philippines.

Melissa Ramos’s “Distant Memories” is part of Balik Bayan, a program of contemporary Filipino
art at the Blacktown Arts Centre running from 7 September to 4 November 2017.
