Film highlights Filipino workers' woes in Israel

In this Aug.2, 2013 photo, Filipino independent film director Hannah Espia, who directed and co-wrote the film "Transit" poses at the Cultural Center of the Philippines where her film is being shown in the country's Cinemalaya film festival in Manila, Philippines. The film about Filipino migrant workers in Israel who hide a 4-year-old boy to try to stop his deportation has hit close to home in the Philippines. Such emotional dramas are all too familiar in a place where 10 million countrymen work abroad. (AP Photo/Bullit Marquez)
