Awards Film News

Paris Zarcilla’s debut feature RAGING GRACE, a gender-bending horror drama, premiered at SXSW this week.

The premier was triumphant with RAGING GRACE winning the narrative competition and Paris winning the Thunderbird rising award.

The film follows Joy, an undocumented Filipino immigrant who is struggling to do the best she can for her daughter when she secures the perfect job: taking care of an extremely wealthy but terminal old man. The new position pays well and guarantees a roof over their heads. But very soon, Joy and her daughter Grace start to realize everything is not as it seems. Something is festering beneath the surface, threatening all they have worked for.
