Ukraine is Not a Brothel
“The world sees our country as one big brothel. Tourists come here to find whores. We believe that we need to protest against this ... [so] the world sees Ukraine as a country where naked girls protest, not sell their bodies.” Those are the words of Sasha, the ostensible protagonist of Kitty Green’s bold, insightful documentary “Ukraine is Not a Brothel.” A film about FEMEN, a collective Wikipedia describes, with typical Wiki short-sightedness, as “an exhibitionist feminist protest group founded in Ukraine in 2008,” the documentary is one of the most notable films making its Canadian premiere at Hot Docs, Toronto’s annual documentary film festival.
