►Paper Dolls: a documentary that follows the lives of trans migrant workers from the Philippines. They've emigrated to Israel to work as care-givers for elderly orthodox Jewish men. On their one day off per week, they perform as the drag troupe "Paper Dolls". Filled with contradictions and shattering preconceived expectations, the film is a journey of a young Israeli filmmaker who befriends the group. Through the characters, the impacts of political policy and the pains of precarious work are lived. On another level, the film is about trans people rejected by their families who emigrate to care for other people's parents who have been rejected by their children in old age. There is much to explore through the Paper Dolls art, work and relationships.
