“Every Sunday” follows a group of Filipino domestic workers in Cyprus getting ready for a beauty pageant organised by their
local community. The organizers and the participants use it as an opportunity to gather once a week - their only day off - as
well as to redefine their position as migrant working women in Cypriot society and reclaim their individuality.
Meanwhile, an unprecedented case of a serial killer targeting foreign female workers and their little daughters comes to the
surface. With 4 of the victims being Filipino, the community, including the pageant’s participants and organizers, come together
to react to the crime and pay their respects to the victims.
This documentary examines gender, race, class and power relations that permeate Cypriot society, through a celebration that
empowers the migrant working woman but also through the horror of these crimes and the institutional gaps that have allowed them.
