Description:

Southern Circuit is the nation’s first regional tour of independent filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film.

See the indie film, Girl Model  at the Morris Museum of Art. After viewing the movie, enjoy a question-and-answer session with filmmakers David Redmon  and Ashley Sabin .

Despite a lack of obvious similarities between Siberia and Tokyo, a thriving model industry connects these distant regions. Girl Model  follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries: Nadya, a 13-year-old plucked from her rustic home in Russia and dropped into the center of bustling Tokyo with promises of a profitable career. After Ashley’s initial discovery of Nadya, they rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya’s optimism about rescuing her family from financial hardship grows, her dreams contrast against Ashley’s more jaded outlook about the industry’s corrosive influence.
