Medium: 《守護者》(The Helper)對你來說,外傭是什麼人?

紀錄片《守護者》談香港的外傭。英文名 The Helper 沒有中文片名的豐富涵意,取名《守護者》自然是視家庭的守護者,協助僱主維持家庭運作。但是,引起英國電影人Joanna Bowers的興趣,不是以外來者的身分守護了陌生家庭,而是她在香港看見外傭佔據街道的場面,提出了疑問:「為何她們無法融入本地社區?要這樣在露天地方席地而坐。」於是,萌生拍紀錄片的念頭,在網上眾籌了九萬元,拍成了這一齣紀錄片 。

 

THE GLOBAL PARENT: FILMMAKER JOANNA BOWERS ON TELLING WOMENS’ STORIES & MOTHERHOOD

Joanna gives voice to stories that usually remain untold. She shows us the husbands whose indolence places the burden of both earning and care-taking on their wives and the children who never understand, even once grown, that their mothers left so they could have a better life. She films the women as they soothe other people’s babies while they ache to hold their own and captures their talents and dreams which go far beyond taking care of a home. Needless to say, there isn’t a dry eye in the house during screenings.
