http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/left-by-the-ship/ Premiering May 24, 2012. Check local listings: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/broadcast.htmlIn this companion video to the Independent Lens documentary, Left by the Ship, Robert, a Filipino Amerasian blogger meets with other Amerasians living in Olongapo City, whose fathers were U.S. servicemen once stationed here. Their stories are sadly consistent, telling of rejection and discrimination, along with a hope that they will be reunited with their fathers.JR, Charlene, Margarita, and Robert are half American; they are among the many children born to U.S. servicemen who were stationed in military bases in the Philippines until 1992. Like most Filipino Amerasians, they were left behind by their biological fathers and largely forgotten. Over the course of two years, they delve into the psychological and social consequences of the U.S. military presence and its legacy.Learn more about "Independent Lens": http://www.pbs.org/independentlensWatch "Independent Lens" films online: http://video.pbs.org/program/1218239994/
