TRAILER

This is a highly controversial documentary in which the filmmaker, Pål Hollender, interviews six prostitutes in Riga, Latvia, and at the end of the film pays three of the women $200 each and proceeds to have sexual intercourse with them - on camera! The purported purpose of this film is to show how women in former communist Europe are exploited in the sex industry by rich tourists. "Buy, Bye, Beauty" provoked massive protests in Latvia, and indeed the whole Baltic region, when it was first released in 2001.
