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.



This screening is part of the The 15th Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival, for more information, please visit
