Many Filipinos leave the country in the hope that working abroad could help them uplift their living conditions, would be able to send loved ones to a good school, buy medicines for their family members who are sick and secure a different future, especially for their children. More often than not, the phenomenon of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) end up as victims of maltreatment and exploitation.

“Migrante (The Filipino Diaspora)” is directed and written by award winning Filipino director and screenwriter Joel C. Lamangan and Bonifacio Ilagan respectively.

A joint venture of Kanlungan Filipino Charity and Migrante Europe, the Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines to highlight the links between the issues of poverty and migration in the Philippines vis-à-vis the situation of Filipino migrants in the UK. CHRP, and Kanlungan Filipino Charity, have partnered with Philippine-based XITI Productions and Migrante Europe, to bring the film to Europe.

The film is a drama depicting the everyday struggle and situation of migrant Filipinos abroad and their families back home.
Looking forward to your support on this venture!
