This week, Kundurama, Kundura Cinema‘s streaming website, is airing the award-winning documentary “Overseas” by South Korean director and artist Sung-a Yoon.

Several candidates train for homesickness and possible violations in a learning center devoted to domestic work. In role-playing exercises, they take on the roles of both the worker and the boss.
Starting from the Locarno Film Festival, where it premiered, the “Overseas” was shown in the programs of the world’s leading documentary film festivals such as CPH: DOX, BFI London, Busan, IDFA and selected as Best Documentary Film at Warsaw, Hamptons Film Festivals.

The film, which will be screen in its original language, will be free to watch with English subtitles at Kundurama until May 16.
