TRANSIT – A Film by Hannah Espia

In 2009 the Israeli government passed a new law allowing the children of foreign workers to be deported back to their parents’ country. Transit depicts the inter-connected lives of overseas workers who struggle to prevent their children from being deported to the Philippines even though they have lived and worked in Tel Aviv for years. Filmed on location, the viewer is transported to a country filled with culture and history and given an intimate look at the protagonists lives dealing with the struggles of family, identity and finding a place in a foreign land.
