We partnered with Cheeky Monkey Productions to produce The Helper, a feature-length documentary that chronicles diverse stories from Hong Kong’s domestic worker community, uncovering the inspiring combination of grit, pride and determination that drives them. After the film premiered in Hong Kong in May 2017, it enjoyed an immensely successful run in cinemas. It's now available internationally on popular streaming services including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Prime.
