LEFT BY THE SHIP
Italy/USA/Finland 2010 80’
Directed by: Emma Rossi Landi, Alberto Vendemmiati
Subic Bay, in the Philippines, was the largest US naval base outside the United States until 1992. Many women had no alternative but to become prostitutes in the nightclubs frequented by off-duty soldiers. The result is a generation of 50,000 Asian-Americans, the fruit of brief encounters cut short when the fleet returned home. The film follows the lives of four of them, caught between self-affirmation and conflicting feelings about their far-off fathers who remain indifferent to their existence.
