This video isn’t new, but for many moved by Anthony Chen’s highly successful film Ilo Ilo and others who hold the plight of Filipino domestic helpers dear to their hearts, it’s an eye-opener.
Here, the production team records the very candid behaviour of Lucky Plaza patrons, most of whom are Filipino and Indian workers.
The film also features uncensored (read: surprisingly open and unrehearsed) interviews with a recruitment agency in Lucky Plaza, as well as a helper who claims she’d been put through rough working conditions, via Home, a migrant protection agency.
