Ukraine Is Not a Brothel


Director Kitty Green will appear via Skype for Q&A

Details: 2013, Australia/Ukraine, 80 min
Director: Kitty Green
Synopsis: Ukraine’s topless feminist sensation FEMEN have stirred up a press frenzy across Europe. Outraged by the world’s image of Ukrainian women as either brides for sale or commodities of sex tourism, Femen bare their breasts in protest to disrupt this perception and agitate against these brutal patriarchal forces. Now, for the first time, “Ukraine Is Not A Brothel” offers an intimate glimpse inside the world’s most provocative feminist organization. A movement that began in the snow-filled streets of a corrupt, post-Soviet Ukraine, Femen’s naked war against patriarchy is gaining momentum across Europe, but before they can take the world by storm, these bold and beautiful women must first come to terms with the sometimes contradictory forces and motives that powered their movement’s rise to international prominence.
