The end of the working day, film 15'28", 2015
This film documents the returning journey from work of a group of young men working in the area of HarbourFront to their sleeping places nearby to Changi airport in Singapore. The footage was filmed in a continuous shot, the men were sitting quietly, during the trip one fell asleep. Like many others they are doing this trip every day. A few months after this film was shot the worker's car was involved in a serious accident. Fortunately everyone survived.
The total foreign workforce in Singapore is around 1.336.700 which makes 37,9 % of the total workforce (source MOM, 2014), many of these people are coming from China, Bangladesh, India, Malayesia, Indonesia and Phillippines.
