Girl 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 thirteen year-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.

Press

  • A disturbing documentary about a side of the modeling business that's far from super.
    Philadelphia Daily News
    Ellen Gray
  • The film will, at the very least, make you wonder about who the "girl model" really is the next time you open a fashion magazine or see a billboard.
    Georgia Straight
    Michelle da Silva
  • A powerful documentary that, with a wider scope and a bit more shaping, could have been even more powerful, perhaps unbearably so. What's there is strong enough.
    Boston Globe
    Ty Burr
  • David Redmon and Ashley Sabin's somber, sometimes poetic, Fred Wiseman-like documentary ...
    Boston Phoenix
    Peter Keough
