Girl Model


Girl Model


CATALOGUE TEXT
There’s a lot of nothing in Siberia. It’s as vast as the hopes of many families for their young daughters’ careers. Lured by promises of salvation they flock to the mass castings of international model agencies. This is where we meet the former model Ashley, who has lived through all the ups and downs of the industry and now works as a scout who recruits girls. Among them is 13-year-old Nadya, whom we follow into a world where nothing is worth more than youth, innocence, and a certain beauty ideal.
