Sex work on the autobahn

LOVEMOBIL follows Bulgarian Milena and Nigerian Rita who work as prostitutes in camper vans parked along the autobahn between Hannover and Wolfsburg. Both have come to Germany in the hopes of making a better life for themselves and have ended up in circumstances few would envy them. With remarkably intimate access to the women and their clients, director Elke Margarete Lehrenkrauss crafts a bleak yet decidedly humanistic portrait of their everyday life – as well as a thought-provoking vision of the modern-day European labour market.
