Hannah Espia第一部导演作品就代表菲律宾角逐2014年奥斯卡最佳外语片,因为讲得不只是菲律宾移工在以色列的故事,更是全世界移民、离散论述的缩影。全片分别以五位主角的五个观点看相同时间段发生的事:移工Janet工作签证到期后非法居留以色列;男友Moises的前女友嫁给以色列人;新来的移工Tina不但没找到工作反而怀孕了;Janet的女儿Yael只会说希伯来语,听不懂母亲说话,还交了个当地男友;不满五岁的Joshua说希伯来语、听得懂菲律宾语,更向往犹太教经典妥拉,但却因以色列法律面临遣返回菲律宾的危险。令人想起香港外佣争取居留权案终审败诉的争议。


导演:Hannah Espia




When the Israeli government begins deporting the children of migrant workers, Janet, a domestic worker on an expired visa, struggles to hide her half-Israeli daughter, Yael-a rebellious teenager caught up in a juvenile romance, and Joshua, a four-year old boy left in her care.Working outside of the city as a caregiver, Moises, the young boy's father, struggles.

Between providing for his son and protecting him from the authorities. The film also explores the life of Tina, a young woman who arrives in Tel Aviv to start a new life and resides with Janet. With the constant threat looming over their precarious lives, the film examines what it means to be a family and what it means to be a stranger, within one's home and in a foreign land.
