MOVING PARTS

directed by Emile Upzcak

FEATURED SCREENING

After the death of her father, Zhenzhen hires a smuggler to take her to the Caribbean island where her brother, Wei, works in construction. Wei gets her a job at a restaurant, but when the smuggler demands more cash, she is forced into a compromising position. Help comes unexpectedly from Evelyn, who runs an art gallery in the neighbourhood—but the contrast between the dark rooms above the restaurant and the blindingly white gallery calls everyone’s innocence into question.

Runtime: 93 min
Country of Production: Trinidad & Tobago

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

“A friend gave me an article from one of the local newspapers that told the story of a Venezuelan woman who had been brought over a number of times to the island as a sex worker. The article depicted her as a criminal without a moral compass and did not attempt to dissect the larger system/s in place that facilitate human smuggling onto the island and the selling of foreign bodies to Trinidadian nationals for a number of different purposes.”
