Synopsis

Approximately two hundred sex workers occupied the church of Saint-Nizier, in Lyon, in the spring of 1975. They speak of their personal stories, their relationships to society, their labour conditions, and their demands to stop police and social harassment.

MUBI's take

In response to a scandal that linked the Lyon vice squad with local brothels, over a hundred sex workers occupied a church in protest. In this vital film, Carole Roussopoulos records the women’s testimonies, bearing direct, unvarnished witness to the birth of the modern sex workers’ rights movement.
