Don't miss this hilarious feature documentary that explores filmmaking in the Philippines during the Marcos era, when miniature James Bonds, karate-kicking soul sisters, snake-loving babes, anorexic Rambos, sexy revolutionaries and gun- toting nuns were the rage. The ultimate B-Movie feast from the far, far east, Machete Maidens Unleashed! is a fast moving odyssey into the subterranean world of the rarely explored province of Filipino genre filmmaking.
