Homesick Eyes
TAIWAN/1997/Thai, English/Color/35mm/85min
Director: Hsu Hsiao-ming *no English subtitles
Hsu Hsiao-ming focuses on four Asian laborers in Taiwan. Philippine house servants and Thai construction workers are the new nomads of more industrialized countries. Hsu skips the usual newsreel style and opts to delineate the homesick hearts of four individuals. The result is both touching and realistic.
