New documentary exposes sexual harassment in modeling
Caught on Camera
In an attempt to shed light on sexual harassment in the modeling industry, model Sara Ziff and her ex-boyfriend Ole Schell created a documentary, Picture Me, after filming hundreds of hours of footage over the course of five years. Alongside well-worn stories of eating disorders and the pressure to be thin, models give one-on-one interviews detailing high-end editorials that digressed into centerfold photo shoots, unsolicited touching, and so on. Picture Me is currently making its way through the festival circuit—it won the audience award for Best Picture at the Milan International Film Festival—but its trailer can be viewed here.
