Come To Me, Paradise

Lumapit Sa Akin, Paraiso

Filipina-Canadian filmmaker Stephanie Comilang’s Come to Me, Paradise indirectly takes as its subject the increasingly documented struggle of migrant Filipina domestic workers in Hong Kong, whose occupation is characterized by rampant conditions of forced labor, exploitation, and human trafficking. The film conjures an intimate and complex portrait of the domestic workers’ everyday lives through examining the women’s ritual of digitally transmitting their stories and memories back to the Philippines at the end of each working week. A deft mixture science fiction and documentary, Come to Me, Paradise employs a tone that’s equal measures dissociative, casual, and understatedly spiritual.
