Overseas

Belgium, France  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  90'  ·  o.v. Tagalog/Ilonggo/English

In a training center for house work, like many others in the Philippines, candidates who are about to leave prepare themselves for the homesickness and mistreatment that could occur overseas.


Reenactments have become a familiar device in recent documentaries, often used to find a historical truth. In this trainee center for domestic workers, what we see are “pre-enactments” staged to prepare Filipina laborers for the truth to come: the abuse they will likely face in their deployment across the world. Yoon’s camera is at once firm and gentle, an embrace of its subjects.
