Royal Cafe / One Cambodian Family / Together Apart
A triple bill of shorts considering the boundaries of community and how being a migrant woman may shift those boundaries. Looking in, carrying it with you, catalysing change, making your own - ‘community’ is an amorphous idea. These films consider it in turns goofy and subtle, bittersweet and sardonic - these films play wonderfully off one another!
ROYAL CAFE: A Swiss-Tibetan filmmaker moves to Paris, where she wants to make a film about the local Tibetan community. She starts hanging out at Royal Cafe, where she meets people with different backgrounds and experiences of being part of the Tibetan diaspora.
Director: Tenzin Dazel & Rémy Caritey
ONE CAMBODIAN FAMILY PLEASE FOR MY PLEASURE: A refugee from Czechoslovakia has settled down in the US. As she hears about Cambodians refugees fleeing a dictatorship, she wants to step in and sponsor a Cambodian family so that they can move into her community.
Director: A. M. Lukas
TOGETHER APART: Guil Ann, a 25 year-old woman from the Philippines, follows her mother Carren’s footsteps to work as a live-in domestic helper in Cyprus. Having lived apart for most of their lives, mother and daughter are reunited for the first time in years - only to be separated again when Carren gets arrested by the Cypriot immigration police.
Director: Maren Wickwire
