家務移工組研讀活動第二回——第二節
放映《T婆工廠》

《T婆工廠》
導演︰陳素香 , 57分鐘/中或英文字幕
台灣國際勞工協會 TIWA製作

2004年底,位於台北的「飛盟國際電子公司」,因老闆掏空資產逃往大陸,員工面臨關廠的命運。這個工廠有三百多個員工,其中125名是來自菲律賓的女性移工;她們因為三個月沒拿到薪水,憂心忡忡且無所適從,因此去到台灣國際勞工協會(Taiwan International Workers’ Association/TIWA)求助。TIWA一邊組織她們的抗爭行動,也一邊記錄下難得的移工集體抗爭事件。但是拍著拍著,鏡頭裡出現雙雙對對的同志伴侶,互相依偎,溫馨甜蜜。於是這個紀錄意外發展成愛的故事…….

影片成功地將「移工抗爭」與「移工的同志情慾」-兩個經常被分拆開討論的議題-呈現在同一個鏡頭。讓我們藉著《T婆工廠》討論一下:究竟移工的友誼及移工同志之間的情結在抗爭中扮演著什麼角色?「移民工人」和「同志」這兩個身份的交纏如何複雜化了整場抗爭?

‘Lesbian Factory’:
director: susan chan , 57mins/ chinese or english subtitle
by Taiwan International Workers’ Association(TIWA)

In 2004, the Fast Fame Electronics Factory suddenly shut down operations. 125 Filipina migrant workers, who worked in the factory, were stranded without jobs. Worse still, the factory owners disappeared without paying them 3-month salary. TIWA, Taiwan International Workers’ Association, was dedicated to helping them organize and fight for their rights. While TIWA organizing the series of protests, they documented the struggle along the way. Surprisingly, several lesbian couples were captured by the camera, which complicated the story by adding emotions and love to a story of labor struggle.

The documentary issues of ‘queer sexuality’ and ‘labor struggle’ of migrant workers are rarely discussed together. By watching this documentary, we can contemplate upon: how the above issues intersect? How the bonding among workers and lesbian relations among them empower the movement? …..
