Intense visions of a world where flesh and drugs are antidotes to death.

In Cambodia, India, Cuba, Ukraine and elsewhere, filmmaker/photographer Antoine d'Agata gathers nocturnal images of prostitutes on streets and in hotel rooms. He also records monologues in which they speak quietly of their lives, of the men who frequent them and of their fears of death and illness. This astonishingly-realised film advances no political position on prostitution and neither glamourises nor moralises on the lives of its subjects. Instead, Atlas celebrates them as tragic heroines of a universe with its own laws. [18]
