Girl Model

United States 2011, 78 min, English, Russian and Japanese, Hebrew & English subtitles

The modeling industry that connects Siberia to Tokyo is revealed through the eyes of two protagonists. Nadya (13) is chosen from among hundreds of Siberian girls for a fashion shoot in Japan. Naively hoping to alleviate her family’s financial hardship, she soon realizes that her contract leaves her alone and penniless in a foreign country. Ashley (30) is a former model; the harsh experiences she underwent taught her to take charge of her destiny. Today she works as a model scout specializing in matching the Siberian look to the Japanese product. Is she inflicting on Nadya what others did to her, or does she have the ability to change the industry from within?
