DIE BEAUTIFUL (2016)
A Filipino comedy-drama film directed by Jun Robles Lana starring Paolo Ballesteros. The film had its premiere at the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival on October 27, 2016 and is an official entry to the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival. Trisha, a Filipino transgender woman, suddenly dies while being crowned in a beauty pageant. Her last wish was to be presented as a different celebrity on each night of her wake, but her conservative father wants to bury her as a man. Trisha's friends are left with no choice but to steal her body and hold the wake in a secret location. And as Trisha is transformed to look like different celebrities, they also look back at the colorful and extraordinary life that she has led - being a son, a sister, a mother, a friend, a lover, a wife, and ultimately, a queen.
