Description
dir. Baby Ruth Villarama
Beneath Hong Kong’s glittering facade, nearly two hundred thousand Filipinas are domestic workers living in relative anonymity with their employers.

They work twenty-four hours a day, six days a week, with only Sunday off. In a beauty pageant like no other, five women give themselves makeovers for a day and gleefully reclaim their dignity. The film documents the lives of these hardworking Filipinas as they escape once a week from their foreign employers and take a break from a life far away from home. (2016, 94 min)

*Join us at 6:30PM for a free reception in the Youth Arts Lounge, on the second floor near the Screening Room. Director and producer will be present in person during the screening.
