Ukraine Is Not a Brothel

.
Kitty Green / 2013
Ukraine's topless feminist sensation, Femen, has stirred up a press frenzy across Europe. Femen bare their breasts to protest the international perception of Ukrainian women as either brides for sale or commodities of sex tourism. With a first-time intimate glimpse into the world's most provocative feminist organization, we see how Femen fight their naked war against patriarchy. However, before they take the world by storm, these bold and beautiful women must first confront the perverse and contradictory forces that power their own "titillating" organisation.

Press

  • "Ukraine’s feminist movement is the subject of Kitty Green’s critical, yet sympathetic documentary about Femen, an organization formed in the wake of Ukrainian independence from the Soviet Union that aims to shed light on the hardships faced by Ukrainian women... Femen focuses on sex workers who have been the victims of human trafficking, but their methodology is questionable at best... Femen’s signature act of civil disobedience is the topless protest, which naturally attracts attention, although not necessarily for the intended reasons. An interesting profile of an unconventional feminist group, this is recommended."

  • "A fascinating documentary..."
