ROOM WITHOUT A VIEW

A CHRONICLE OF THE EXPLOITATION OF
MIGRANT DOMESTIC WORKERS IN LEBANON

Room Without A View reveals the dire reality of foreign domestic workers in Middle Eastern countries such as Lebanon. The documentary offers an intimate insight into the private lives of employers, agents and maids. Laws create a legal structure of inequality and power imbalance that encourages corruption and abuse. Sexism and the patriarchal system discriminate against Lebanese women in turn perpetuates abuse against foreign domestic workers. Exposing a modern form of slavery, the film reflects on the role of women and domestic worker in capitalist societies.

THE FILMMAKER

Roser Corella (Barcelona, 1978) is an Independent Documentary Filmmaker currently based in Berlin. Roser began her career as video-journalist for the Catalan TV, but her interest in human stories behind global issues moved her to start self-producing and developing a personal vision within the documentary field. Her work - Machine man (short, 2011), Prisoners of Kanun (short, 2014), Grab and run (feature, 2017) – has been shown worldwide, winning numerous awards. Her fascination for the documentary genre has led her to travel the world in search of stories that deserve to be told. Not only to witness but to challenge and raise critical questions about contemporary societies.
