Film review from Locarno 2019: 'Overseas'
Sung-a Yoon's Belgian-French documentary 'Overseas' examines the training of Filipina maids leaving behind their own families to enter the global domestic workforce.
The most sympathetic, illuminating study of domestic labor since
No mention is made, however, of the financial set-up of the training-academy itself. Yoon is clearly more interested in the proceedings' psychological and sociological aspects, presenting the role-plays in a detached manner which nonetheless brings out their bizarre and humorous aspects. But these welcome moments of levity never detract from the fundamental seriousness of the subject matter. Yoon shows appropriate interest in and respect for the tough psychological traumas that OFWs ("so vulnerable") can often suffer, manifesting in loneliness, depression, and in extreme cases, suicide.
