Foreign Customers

(DVD, VHS), 2004


For my video Fremde Freier (Foreign Customers), I interviewed Russian-speaking prostitutes (from Latvia, Lithuania and Belorussia) who work on the German-Polish border about their German customers. Germans make up 90 percent of the clientele in the border zones. The women tell their stories in Russian, in a film with German subtitles. In preparation for Fremde Freier, I was kindly assisted by the staff of the association Belladonna e.V. in Frankfurt (Oder).
