The Face of Africa

Different ideas of beauty are explored through the eyes of Lina and Natalina, two ex-models who are setting up Ethiopia's first model agency. We follow them on a 'scouting' trip to remote rural villages looking for beautiful teenage girls to satisfy the growing appetite of the western market.

Director: Juliana Ruhfus
