One Response to ““My Asian Heart””

  1. Wow I thought this film was such a great incite to give all people on Asia . This isn’t shown on FOX CNN or any other TV. It really shows what most people don’t even know. People that do not travel, probably haven’t been exposed to a poverty ridden country like shown in this movie. These people are hidden to the middle class world. This is as real as it gets people. Truly a natural realization of life outside your comfortable boxes, like the USA, ENGLAND.. ect .,where ever you call home. I have lived in Kuwait where a lot of great people come to try to work and provide for their families from: Philippines, India.. These Poverty ridden countries do not have any real means of work. The population to jobs ratio makes it impossible to provide for their families in their homeland. That’s why they go abroad. They are treated as slaves by all Arabs all over the (U.A.E, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi) middle east. They are treated as cheap imported labor. (sub people). Enslaved, raped, beaten, killed and banded from returning, if not obedient. So I have the up most compassion for them all. This movie touched me by giving these great people voices they need. Not pity voices, just human voices to be heard and admired for their courage and strength. Love it!!!
