Award ‘Overseas’

Wonderful news! Yet another award for ‘Overseas’: Best Feature Documentary at DOXA Documentary Film Festival! Congrats to the director Sung-a Yoon and the wonderful crew!

Jury statement:
“Alternating between role-play re-enactments and intimate everyday moments, Sung-A Yoon’s stunning film allows these women to tell their stories in the present tense, bringing us closer to their reality while allowing space for emotion and reflection. Through its artistry and tenderness, the film challenges our perceptions of Filipina domestic workers and shows how we as a society are complicit in their treatment. The jury was impressed by the film’s ability to bring emotional power and formal intelligence to the pressing issues faced by migrant domestic workers that have been ignored for far too long.”
