MGFF18: Die Beautiful movie poster

Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Shakira, Julia Roberts and more star in Die Beautiful… or at least their likeness does as portrayed by fabulous Filipino superstar Paolo Ballesteros.

Trisha Echevarria (Ballesteros) is a gorgeous transgender beauty queen who has built her world around the pageant scene. When her life comes to an abrupt end, her friends fulfil her dying wish to be dressed up as a different celebrity for each day of her wake. As her life is lovingly recounted through her roles as a mother, a friend, a girlfriend, a wife and above all else, a fabulous beauty queen, her looks start to gain her online fame.

This heartfelt film weaves together the conflicts the transgender community faces in the Philippines with a charming and vibrant universe to deliver a fun and colourful look at LGBTIQ life in the Philippines.
