Sundance Capsules- DEA and HURRAH, WE ARE STILL ALIVE


Put together by numerous women, this is the story of an Indonesian woman who wants to go to Hong Kong in order to become a domestic worker. The result is an almost documentary like film that will open your eyes.to what the women who want to better their lives have to go though.

This is a moving film that will make you think.


A commune of filmmakers awaits the return of their director, however over time one wonders if he is gone or still there.

Good but perhaps a bit too controlled film, never manages to shake the off the sense we are being manipulated. As a result I never connected with the film and while I can admire the film on a technical level it never  I never did more than like it.
