American Courtesans is a feature documentary that takes you into the lives of American Sex Workers. These women discuss with you candidly what brought them to the doors of the Sex trade, what they found when they got there, and why they stayed. Follow eleven Sex Workers through the streets, massage parlors, Brothels, and strip clubs to the high rises in New York and the Bell Captains in Vegas. This is a story, a different kind of American Story that will leave you speechless. Written by
What was being filmed, who was being filmed and where it was being filmed was on a need to know basis in order to protect the women and their clients. Each day was a total surprise. From the deserts in Las Vegas, to truck stops in California, to the high rises in Manhattan, and the French Quarter in New Orleans the crew woke up each day and was shocked and awed over and over again.

. It is doubly interesting not only in the content, as it isn't a titillation, but because it was made by a sex worker. In her first attempt Kristen DiAngelo has made quite a special film. It is compelling and powerful as she interviews 10 other sex workers, and some of their families (husband, mother, son) in an emotional 86 minutes. I found it was impossible to look away from for a minute. This is a well made movie and has been shown at several film festivals including the ECU festival in Paris, The Women's International in Miami and has won awards in Phoenix (Bloody Hero for editing, Costa Rica editing) and others. As their PR notes: "Eleven American Sex Workers come together to relive their personal challenges and triumphs, in the feature documentary American COURTESANS. It is a frank unscripted account by these women and some of their family. It has been screened at many film festivals including the ECUin Paris and Women's International in Miami.
