The Helper Documentary: Stories of Domestic Workers in Hong Kong

Why We Recommend it

This newly released documentary by filmmaker Joanna Bowers chronicles the diverse stories from Hong Kong’s migrant domestic workers, and sheds light the sacrifices they make to support families – both in Hong Kong and at home.


There are more than 330,000 migrant domestic workers living in Hong Kong. The Helper documentary— brought to life through a crowdfunding campaign–uncovers the inspiring combination of grit, pride and determination that drives the domestic worker community.

Telling just a few of their many stories that show the contribution helpers make to Hong Kong society, The Helper is created to give a human face to an often-critiqued community.
