Off World is an ethereal, occasionally disturbing portrait of one of The Philippines’ most notorious slums.
Though fictional, Off World plays like a documentary, following a young Toronto man named Lucky, whose life is utterly transformed during a journey to his birthplace of Smokey Mountain.
"Off World is a beautifully shot drama."
“Guez’s debut feature provides many stark and haunting views…Off World is still effective as the story of a man’s search for identity in a place where most people are happier to escape.”
— Jason Anderson, The Toronto Star, April 2010
