Becoming Labrador

Directed by Justin Simms, Rohan Fernando, Tamara Segura

Combining documentary footage with interpretive animation, Becoming Labrador follows a handful of Filipino workers travelling halfway around the world for jobs they hope will offer their families new opportunities and a better life. As they make a place for themselves in the stark interior of Happy Valley-Goose Bay’s profoundly foreign climate and culture, they need to deal with unexpected costs of living far from parents, partners and children.
