Thursday, April 5 | 6:30-8:30pm | Sunday Beauty Queen
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.
