Not many people associate Filipino transsexuals with Orthodox Jewish men, but in his documentary "Paper Dolls" (2006), Israeli director Tomer Heymann presents a world where the two meet. The title, refers to the Filipino drag queen singing group that performs in Tel Aviv nightclubs. The members, all transsexuals in different stages of gender transition, emigrated to Israel to work as health care providers for elderly, Jewish men. Unable to file for citizenship and always at the risk of having their visasrevoked if unemployed, the film looks at the lives of these people as they navigate their way through Israeli's politics and culture. Their relationships with the elderly men they care for is highlighted, providing a touching and warm side to the story that is rarely seen. A unique and perceptive documentary that examines what being an outsider means in any society.
