In Thailand, women wait for clients behind glass panes, staring at reflections of themselves. in Bangladesh, men go to a ghetto of love to satisfy their unfulfilled desires on indentured girls. And in Mexico, women pray to a female death to avoid facing their own reality. In worlds where the most intimate act has become a paid commodity, these women have received money for it - but it has not made their lives rich in anything but stories.

Michael Glawogger talks about WHORES' GLORY
Sex is for sale everywhere. The marketplaces vary depending on the society, and they are reflections of it. Michael Glawogger observed the business in Thailand, Bangladesh and Mexico in more or less forbidden zones semi-concealed in the society's shadows, then created a triptych on prostitution which is filled with powerful images. An interview with the director.
