Fly in Power follows Charlotte, a Korean massage worker and core organizer of Red Canary Song (RCS). Through her story, we learn how the incarceration system is pitted against Asian migrant women and their survival.
Fly in Power is a glimpse into the intimate spaces that not only connect these workers, but is also a testament to the global advocacy of women's rights to work and thrive. This is the first film to center the narrative of an Asian massage worker in her own words, with her own agency of storytelling and editing. The intention of Fly in Power is to honor their practices of care, autonomy, and survival and to raise awareness of the oppressive systems that face us all.
This film has been produced entirely by women, non-binary, trans and queers of the Asian diaspora. More than half of the production team are former or current sex workers.
