Is the model industry right to be using very young girls to advertise clothing for older women??…

Girl Model follows a complex supply chain between Siberia, Japan and the USA within the modelling industry. The story is told through the eyes of a scout and a 13 year-old model.

Despite a lack of obvious similarities between Siberia and Tokyo, a thriving model industry connects these distant regions.

Girl Model follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a 13yr-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career.

After Ashley‘s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya‘s optimism about rescuing her family from their financial difficulties grows, her dreams contrast against Ashley‘s more jaded outlook about the industry’s corrosive influence.

Check out the trailer to this insightful film above!…
