A Maid for Each - Feature Documentary
Category: Arab Documentary Film Program
Producer: Jinane Dagher
Many Lebanese households employ an African or Asian live-in domestic worker. There are currently 200,000 migrant domestic workers to the 4 million resident Lebanese. The market for domestic work in Lebanon is segmented according to the national and ethnic origins of the worker, where the Lebanese employer is master and the worker is akin to property owned by the master. Through the three characters of Zein, Rima and Lati, the film aims to dissect the entire system and bring a deeper awareness to a reality that, for the Lebanese majority, is largely ignored and taken for granted.
