Snapshots from the life of a working woman, part 2

Helena is a 30-year-old actress and single mother who supplements her unstable income by working as an escort. This leads her into situations that are both comical, absurd and humiliating. It's these situations that form the framework of this feminist essay which explores different ideas of female representation, agency and bodies. Director Tatjana Turanskyj has a background in performance and video art, and TOP GIRL is a film that explores the boundaries between the worlds of contemporary art and the movie business.
