“REM Sleep” this work distills via a documentary format the dreams of Indonesian, Filipino, Thai and Vietnamese laborers who have come to Taiwan as short-term migrant workers after Taiwanese government policy shifted in the 90s. Documentation of these dreams in a foreign land serve on one hand as an exploration of the range of effects of a change of environment on the individual, as a result of shifting global economic forces. On the other hand, as documents with no legal ramifications whatsoever, they also avail to the global economic system inhabited by these nomadic individuals a possible means of introspection.
