2003
Serbian director Goran Radovanovic put out a fake casting call for a panty-hose commercial and used the taped “auditions” as material for this documentary about the exploitation of young women in eastern Europe. Most of the women who strip down to their underwear for him are in dire financial straits, and he follows them into their personal lives to discover how easily pretty girls in a crumbling economy can be sucked into careers as hookers, strippers, or porn actresses. The latter half of this 2003 video features auditions for young men that lead to similar sociological detours, but the most interesting part of the story—the filmmaker's bad faith toward his subjects—is never addressed. In Serbian with subtitles. 52 min.
