Film phase: Production
Depart explores the challenges and the emotional effects of having a transnational family, where some remain at home and others leave to foreign countries in search of better opportunities. Through the stories of three brave families, the film portrays the attempt to abstract barriers and maintain normalcy through routine and ritual. Phone calls, meals and music fill the void of absence and take on a new significance.
