About the Movie
Ukraine's topless feminist sensation Femen has 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 in order to disrupt this perception and agitate 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 organisation. 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 take the world by storm, these bold and beautiful women must first confront the perverse and contradictory forces that power their own 'titillating' feminist organisation.
Baring It All
Filmmaker Kitty Green sometimes wanders into being too personable with her subjects, but she doesn't stray away from showing the flip side of the coin.
'Ukraine Is Not a Brothel' does to feminism what Banksy's 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' did to modern art. It will have you in its grip by the final frame.
