Billie and Emma is one of those rare and genuine films that captures both the simplicity and the depth of youth. 

Arriving in a small Filipino town in the mid 90s, sporting a boy-short haircut, reading Rubyfruit Jungle, and challenging her teachers on the question of homosexuality as a sin, Billie immediately stands out from the crowd.  

Meanwhile Emma, popular and on track for academic success, has always been the star pupil of her small-town, religious school. However, when Emma’s life is unexpectedly turned upside down, she begins to find connections in surprising people.  

Exploring a plethora of young adult themes, from pregnancy, to first love, to sexuality, this film is joyfully honest, surprisingly funny, and filled with moments of genuine connection.

"By avoiding the more obvious dramatic routes and never allowing the social to overwhelm the personal, it crafts something delicate and delightful that still rings true. It's deceptively intelligent, funny, perceptive and a joy to watch" - Eye for Film
