Fright Night: Raging Grace

Dir: Paris Zarcilla
Cast: Max Eigenmann Jaeden Boadilla with Leanne Best and David Hayman
99 mins

Joy (Max Eigenmann), an undocumented Filipina cleaner moving from house to house in London with her impetuous daughter Grace in tow, is saving up her meagre cash payments to get a visa and a more stable home for them both. Stuck in a roundabout of precarious employment, deportation fears and casual, constant put-downs by her employers, Joy cannot afford to stand still. A dreamy gig looking after a mansion and its bed-bound owner (David Hayman) turns out to be too-good-to-be-true when Joy starts suspecting the owner is being slowly poisoned.

Written and directed by Paris Zarcilla, Raging Grace centres the Filipino experience using brushstrokes of horror and drama rendered through the prism of race and power. This bold coming-of-rage transports audiences beyond terror to deliver us to the joy and peace we find when we transgress our masters.
