Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

 

 

Presenting the website

 

leftbytheship


Left By the Ship is a cinema-veritè documentary which explores the psychological and social consequences of a military presence. Robert, Jr, Charlene and Margarita are Amerasians: the sons and daughters of Filipina sex workers and American servicemen stationed at the Subic Bay Naval Base, once the largest US Naval Base outside mainland USA. When the Base closed in 1992, thousands of Amerasian children were left behind. Unlike Amerasian children from other countries, Filipino Amerasians were never recognized by the US government. Over the course of two years, we followed the lives of our four Amerasians, as they struggle with discrimination, family problems and identity related issues, trying to overcome a past they are in no way responsible for.
