"REMEMBER THE BOYS (30 mins. Documentary) poignantly captures the inspiring, true story of a chaplain devoted to his war buddies. A portrait of servanthood in action, Domingo, now in his 80s, is among the last remaining teenage 'Hawaii boys' from the U.S. Army's 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment that went to war together.
Born in Hawaii and a former Hawaii school superintendent, Domingo Los Banos is the son of a Filipino immigrant. He and his siblings grew up on the pineapple plantations of Kauai. After the war, he became an educator. He attended and served at FPC for many years.
As the chaplain to "his boys", and as they fall sick, it is Domingo who ministers to them and their families and who eulogizes them when they pass on. What inspired him to be a shepherd to his war buddies? What calls him to make sure the boys are remembered?
A tribute to caring, the power of friendship, and the cherishing of memories. Most of all this is a portrait of a man living out his faith in Jesus by caring for others, literally to their dying days.
REMEMBER THE BOYS is Stephanie J. Castillo's sixth documentary project and part of her TATLO (THREE) series, an homage to ties that bind, ties that express a deep love of country, forever friendships, and familial sacrifice.
REMEMBER THE BOYS is the first of three documentary portraits to be completed. TATLO, when completed, will feature portraits of three Filipino Americans within a larger tapestry of lives lived amid World War II and the Philippine-U.S. immigrant experience. Stephanie pays respect to three of her elders whose lives have touched hers -- her war-bride mother, a chaplain to his war buddies, and a independent cartoonist.
