Mama Illegal - Why Poverty?
this is an excerpt from a documentary film called “Mama Illegal”… i was thinking i wrote about it before, but searched my tumblr a bit and haven’t found anything.
it’s a film by Ed Moschitz (Austrian journalist, working for ORF)
the film is the result of 7 years of work…
They gave the smugglers all their money and risk their life on their journey across borders: Three women from a small town in Moldavia, living now in Austria and Italy as cleaning women. On top of their hard job they live a life in illegality without documents, far away from their children and family for years. A film about the price of the dream of a better life.
the screening (here and there) of the film started at the end of summer… hopefully it will reach as many venues as possible
p.s.: the soundtrack is by Zdob si Zdub.
