AAPI documentary ‘WHO WE BECOME’ acquired by ARRAY releasing

The Asian American-produced documentary WHO WE BECOME has been acquired by ARRAY Releasing, a distributing company founded by renowned director Ava DuVernay that focuses on driving narrative change.

According to a press release, WHO WE BECOME follows three young Filipino women who embark on a journey of self-discovery during the pandemic. The film was directed by PJ Raval, a queer, first-generation Filipinx-American filmmaker. Raval was named one of IndieWIRE’s ‘25 LGBT Filmmakers on the Rise.’

The documentary was also made with an all-Asian American crew.

“ARRAY takes great pride in releasing this new work by a filmmaker who we have long admired,” said Tilane Jones, president of ARRAY, said in a statement. “PJ Raval’s chronicling of both impact and access in the midst of two major global events is a necessary and noteworthy reflection on issues that are of vital importance.”

WHO WE BECOME premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific International Film Festival earlier this year. It will be available for streaming on Netflix on December 1.
