Bangkok Girl

2005 NR

This poignant documentary explores Thailand's thriving sex tourism industry by examining the life of 19-year-old bar girl Pla. Though she's worked in bars since the age of 13, Pla has -- amazingly -- avoided prostitution so far, but it's unlikely she'll be able to continue holding out. Filmmaker Jordan Clark provides a searing look at how the influx of foreigners has changed Thailand's economy and culture and ruined the lives of many young women.
