Documentary to Watch: “Girl Model”


 

Girl Model: The filmmakers David Redmon and Ashley Sabin examine the lives of teenage girls in Siberia who audition at open casting calls for fashion models.”

 

As an activist working to combat commercial sexual exploitation and misogyny, I have always had conflicted feelings about the modeling industry.  The NY-Times piece about this film intrigued me.  The following quote from the film really drew me in and I am looking forward to watching “Girl Model:”

 

“I have been traveling and documenting in Russia and Ukraine the journey of these young girls that become prostitutes and fashion models, or the foggy lines that exist between both.”
