Sexy Money

Karin Junger

For many, Europe embodies the dream of making easy money. The illegal migrants from West Africa, whom the Dutch filmmaker Karin Junger encountered in many European cities, dreamed exactly this dream. Beside jobs as cleaners and domestic helpers, for many of them sex work was the last avenue. Back in Nigeria Junger follows a group of young women who talk about their fate and immediately take on a new challenge: They want to become mechanics at the initiative "Lady Mechanic". But again, the money necessary for self-determination is missing. What may sound miserable at first turns out to be an exciting, multi-genre journey between continents in this unusual documentary hybrid. Again and again, musical insertions and black and white film interview segments break with the documentary sentiment. The life-affirming film thickens into a manifesto for emancipation, equality and fair wage. _"Sexy Money pays homage to the resilience of women who have to fight for every millimetre of progress."_, International Film Festival Rotterdam *_Director Karin Junger will be present._* "*Buy Ticket >>*":http://www.reservix.de/off/login_check.php?setcookie=1&callOnSale=https://www.adticket.de/shop-verkauft.php&einsprungurl=http://www.adticket.de/off/close.php&id=7c421e5247cdb753e53e3d085cae1e7467371534ce72b964&eventID=645499&eventGrpID=148297&vID=12487
