Sunday Beauty Queen, co-sponsored by the FilFest and BAAFF

  • Pao Art Center 99 Albany Street Boston, MA, 02111 United States (map)

A Filipina maid dreams to become Hong Kong's most beautiful queen not for self worth but to save lives, change the abusive system, and be happy inside out. 

Sunday Beauty Queen offers a glimpse on how the migration phenomenon affects the Philippines, culturally and economically. It shows the real story on how Overseas Filipino Workers cope with the difficulties working abroad and how they uplift the Filipino spirit around the world. Directed By Babyruth Villarama Gutierrez.

Co-Presented by the Filipino Festival in Malden, Sunday Beauty Queen take center stage at the Pao Arts Center with films presented by The Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF). Join us for a curated selection of documentary films showcasing both contemporary and historic Asian American experiences this spring!

Screening will be followed by a Skype Q&A with the filmmaker.
