Dust on the Window
Dusts on the Window follows a stream of narration from various points-of-view, exploring a collective memory shared by Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their families back home during the 1990s. During those years, the number of OFWs significantly increased due to the high unemployment rate in the country. Many Filipinos were forced to work abroad to earn more money, however, it geographically separated families, resulting in feelings of longing and emotional distance.
This animated documentary uses decades-old archival materials, such as voice tapes and love letters collected from families, at a time when the internet was relatively new and communication was a luxury.
