In the West, perceptions of the Orient or the East came from various sources, primarily from direct contact between colonizers and the colonies. Other sources of these perceptions came from the portrayal and representations of the Orient through the visual arts, the performing arts and literature. The representations of Asian women described above were originally all created by Europeans, who in this case would be considered Orientalists. This whole process of the West creating images of the Orient is at the heart of Edward Said's critique of Orientalism. A film that a Western filmmaker creates can partake of Orientalism while challenging it at the same time. The film Goodbye America is such a text. Goodbye America is about the US Subic Naval Base in Olongapo, Zambales set during the pullout of the US and turnover of the base to the Philippine government in 1986.
