Paper Dolls, Paperback / softback Book

Paper Dolls Paperback / softback

Part of the Modern Plays series


"You know, Yossi, we couldn't dress like this in the Philippines... wear earrings, dye our hair, put on make up, lipstick.

It's forbidden."In Tel Aviv, Israel, a group of Filipino immigrants work as live-in carers for elderly Orthodox Jewish men.

Six days a week they provide dedicated support to their employers.

But on the seventh day they transform into a homespun, sassy musical drag act.

Meet the Paper Dolls!An extraordinary true story exploring an unlikely collision of cultures and the universal desire to find `home'. Based on Tomer Heymann's award-winning documentary of the same name, Paper Dolls explores changing patterns of global immigration and expanding notions of family through the prism of a community of Filipino transvestites who live illegally in Israel.
