Sin City Diary (Women's Month)

This film explores the lives of women who work as prostitutes around the US Navy base at Subic Bay in the Philippines. The program takes the form of a diary to incorporate Rachel Rivera's own experience as a Filipina American. The decision to shut down the base marks the end of nearly a century of American presence in that country. Sin City raises important questions about America's responsibility to its former colony, while celebrating the humanity and resilience of a community living out the legacy of its country's colonial past.

This film series is co-sponsored by: the Women and Gender Studies Institute, the Philippine Women's Centre, the Southeast Asia Studies Group at the Asia Institute, the Chu Community Network at the Asia Institute, The Department for Sociology and Equity Studies in Education at OISE, and the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies.
