The Prostitution Monologues


Diana, Linoy, Rona, Shelly, Rocha and Liat openly speak about their life in prostitution: from the initial lure, through learning the rules, to survival strategies.
They present stories of independence, resourcefulness, pain and trauma, expressing an extreme feminine and human experience. Michaela (pseudonym) – a young woman currently engaged in prostitution, sounds off on the struggle to survive, turning her cellphone camera into a weapon. The women challenge what is expected of them – to be ashamed and conceal themselves.
