Calling Home

2008, 12.11mins

For most Londoners home is both in the city and somewhere else… at the other end of a phone line.

This short documentary, entirely shot inside phone booths in cheap international call centres, is a gripping, emotional portrait of long distance relationships between immigrants and their families in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and South America.


DIRECTORS/ PRODUCERS: Marcelo Starobinas & Maria Eduarda Andrade
