Honest Lies

2013, 3 minutes

A short film depicting a meeting between a prostitute and the wife of a client.

Gabriella Apicella runs a fortnightly creative writing group for women exiting prostitution. Struck by the poignancy of a story written by one of the group members, she has adapted it for the screen, and filmed it on 27th and 28th July 2013. This story authentically and touchingly portrays a prostitute who does not conform to the “happy hooker” stereotype or the eroticised glamour of “Secret Diary of a Call Girl”. Instead, it presents the person; the woman; so often forgotten, and so rarely heard.
