Whores’ Glory

An Interview With Michael Glawogger

Whores Glory


Whores’ Glory, a ground-breaking and surprisingly accurate documentary about sex workers in three countries from Austrian director Michael Glawogger, opened Friday in New York and Seattle, after provoking considerable buzz  at the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals in September. Last week, I sat down with Glawogger, who was visiting New York for a retrospective of his work at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. Whores’ Glory is the sequel to Workingman’s Death (2005), which gave the same frank treatment to men doing hard physical labor in mines and slaughterhouses.
