Transit

Transit
Directed by Hannah Espia
93 mins. / Phillipines / English, Hebrew, Filipino, Tagalog with English and Chinese subtitles / 2013

Transit was the Filipino entry for the 2014 Best Foreign Film Oscar.
When Moises, a Filipino caregiver comes home to Tel Aviv for his son, Joshua’s 4th birthday, his world is turned upside down by the unnerving political news: the Israeli government is deporting children of all foreign workers.

An earthy portrait of the displaced — refugees, immigrants and foreign workers, Transit poses the problem of subject identity, home and national identity in question that is distinctively relevant to the globalization of the present world.
