Storyline

WHORES' GLORY is a cinematic triptych on prostitution: three countries, three languages, three religions. In Thailand, women wait for clients behind glass panes, staring at reflections of themselves. In Bangladesh, men go to a ghetto of love to satisfy their unfulfilled desires on indentured girls. And in Mexico, women pray to a female death to avoid facing their own reality. In worlds where the most intimate act has become a commodity, these women have physically and emotionally experienced everything that can happen between a man and a woman. For this they have always received money, but it has not made their lives rich in anything but stories. Written by The Match Factory

Powerful and humbling
12 December 2020 | by borgolariciSee all my reviews

Many of us tend to forget how lucky we really are living like we do, having the opportunities we have. This documentary is a powerful way to remember it. For once, a documentary about prostitution that can be compassionate without being condescending. A must watch.
