Illegal mum


To The Point
2011 / 102 min. / German-Italian-Romanian-Russian version with English and Czech subtitles
Director: Ed Moschitz

Millions of Europeans work at low paying jobs such as construction work and cleaning. Often they were not born in the country where they live and work. But what do we really know about their lives and the reasons which have forced them to work abroad? One day, Austrian documentary director Ed Moschitz begins to ask questions, and eventually discovers a world that he never knew existed. He follows the lives of three Moldovan women working in Italy and Austria, who paid large sums of money to illegally cross borders into western Europe to find work to support their families at home. Difficult life situations, separation from families, financial struggles…. a big European problem about which we remain silent.
