Love & Sex

The Forest de Boulogne, Paris. In the green lung on the outskirts of the city, after nightfall between joggers and dog walkers, you can meet the transsexual sex workers.
In the fairytale-like documentary, the LADIES OF THE WOODS tell their life stories to the rhythm of the clients who come and go.
In the Middle Ages, the city forest was a place for outlaws and outcasts. Since the 20th century, the forest has been known for the sex workers who frequented it. In the 2000s, mainly transsexual sex workers with Latin American roots have been working in the Bois de Boulogne.
"A gallery of portraits with an impeccable image, all in listening and tenderness, between the transformation of bodies and the evolution of morals. Fascinating." (Paris Match)
