Machete Maidens Unleashed! (24-Jul-2010)

Director: Mark Hartley

Writer: Mark Hartley

Keywords: Documentary, Philippines, Filmmaking, Explosions

Documentary examines the phenomenon of Filipino exploitation B-movies of the 1970s and 80s.

ABSTRACT
With non-existent labor laws and desirable scenery, the Philippines played host to some of the film industry's tackiest cult classics of the 1970s and 80s. Machete Maidens Unleashed! examines this phenomenon, featuring interviews with relevant figures and a healthy dose of archive footage to explain how the embattled Southeast Asian country became a purveyor of silver-screen cheese.
