Plaza de la Soledad offers a non-judgmental take on prostitution
The new documentary is an artistic rumination on aging that presents interwoven stories of different low-income Mexican women who are in their golden years. Although the stories told by each of these women vary, what they all have in common is they are facing their later years as prostitutes. The documentary offers an unflinching and intimate examination of everyday life for these women who seldom have a voice and are often judged harshly.
It is the first feature by photographer Maya Goded, who has an uncanny ability to show images that resonate because of their empathy.
