Competition - Creative documentary

Overseas

By Sung-A Yoon

How should you set up a table for dinner? How should you wash a baby? What can you do when your boss tries to rape you? Every year, 200,000 Filipino women pass through specialized training centres before leaving to work as domestic servants in New York, Dubai or Geneva. They go through a series of role-playing games, changing the scenario every day. This film gives a face to these invisible women, and captures their vibrant testimonies, where fear and excitement are mixed with sadness at the idea of leaving their own children. A documentary gem which interrogates the meaning of “work” today and pays tribute to these overwhelmingly brave women.
