2. Sunday Beauty Queen (August 15)
This award-winning documentary follows Filipina OFWs as they participate in a pageant much like the one we saw in Hello, Love, Goodbye. According to TBA: "Beneath Hong Kong's glittering facade, Filipinas working as domestic helpers work in relative anonymity and for near slave wages. In a beauty pageant like no other in the world, five helpers give themselves makeovers for a day and gleefully reclaim their dignity."

Set in the pandemic—during one of the Philippines' many lockdowns—"a political science major and a student working part-time as a delivery driver butt heads online – but soon find themselves falling for each other."
