Documentary highlights domestic drudgery in Lebanon

Maher Abi Samra′s disturbing documentary ″A Maid for Each″ takes a cool-headed look at a Beirut agency that traffics in domestic help. Some may take comfort in thinking the situation of domestic servants in Lebanon isn’t ″our″ world, but in truth, the commodification of foreign home workers by type (″my Filipina″, ″my Mexican″) is a near-universal problem.
