Filmmaker Interview

Filmmaker Ellen Bruno paints a stunning and startling picture of an ugly reality — the thriving sex industry in Thailand. Burmese girls, lured into prostitution with promises of a better life for themselves and their families, give voice to their experiences in this poetic tribute to their struggles for survival. In this interview, Bruno talks about the reason she makes films and why she chose to focus on this particular subject.
