The Price Of Justice
Hong Kong has one of the highest densities of foreign domestic workers in the world. Latest surveys says that approximately 400,000 workers, a vast majority of them from the Philippines and Indonesia, are currently employed in the Asian mega-city.
“The Price of Justice” is a documentary film that follows four migrante domestic workers as they try to pursue cases against their former employers.
Taken into kafkaesque circumstances, these workers spend their days in waiting rooms, long queues and tribunals in a frustrating attempt to get access to justice.
During the production of “The Price of Justice”, I also registered the lives and struggles of these women in a photo series, together with other people featured on the film as relatives of the workers, lawyers, union trade workers and diplomatic authorities.
The film and photo project is a collaboration with the Rights Exposure for Hong Kong Federation of Domestic Workers and has the support of the International Labour Organisation.
