Summary
"Set in Ciudad Juarez, where U.S. multinational corporations assemble equipment across the border from El Paso, Texas, this work investigates the growing impact of the global economy on Mexican women who live and work in the area. The video explores the sexualization of the border through labor division, prostitution, the expression of female desires in the entertainment industry, and sexual violence in the public sphere..."--Container
