A Serving of Love: The Passion of Bill Sorro
Documentary by RJ Lozada
Labor and community activist, Bill Sorro, tirelessly dedicated his life to achieving social and economic justice for tradtionally underrepresented communities. His passion, humor, humility inspired people of all ages, ethnicities, and walks of life. A Serving of Love: The Passion of Bill Sorro is an assemblage of interviews, photos, home videos, journal entries, poetry. The film is an attempt for the Manilatown Heritage Foundation to begin the process of documenting this generation's manongs and manangs, their lives are road maps for generations to follow and journey with. This film is by no means a definitive narrative on Bill. Much like Bill's life this film is usassuming, humble, and even uncomplainingly strained in its production, its exposition, and its presentation. Yet, it dances. What the film intends to do, and much like Bill, is leave you with a sentiment - that as bleak and dark as this world may seem, sometimes all people need in this world, and life, is to give a little love.
I think Bill epitomizes the Che Guevera statement, "At the risk of sounding ridiculous, a revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love." He's really like that-you always feel the love for him, regardless of what he's doing, what's happening to him. -Estella Habal, Professor at San Jose State University
From the days of the International Hotel to the days of Mission SRO Collaborative, an innovative program, which Bill helped start and continues to this day, Bill has taken to heart the politics and the struggle for real liberation of folks who are forced to live in the last stock of affordable housing that's available to people. -Eric Quezada, Executive Director of Dolores Street Community Services.
