Asian American International Film Festival NYC


When Moises, a Filipino caregiver comes home to Tel Aviv for his son, Joshua’s fourth 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. TRANSIT was the Filipino entry for the 2014 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Director Hannah Espia is expected to attend the screening and Q & A.
