Grisélidis Réal is a meteoric figure whose life is the stuff of novels. She worked as a prostitute in the brothels of Munich, where her clients were black American soldiers. She dealt marijuana and served time in prison. In the 1970s, she became the revolutionary hooker.” In her documentary, Marie-Ève de Grave captures the mystery and the joy of this remarkable woman, bringing her voice and her thoughts to life. Immersing viewers in Réal’s writings, read by the filmmaker herself, the film looks back at her dazzling life. Fictional images inspired by texts, drawings, excerpts, manuscripts, photographs, historical archives, interviews and testimonials combine to weave a fragmented and multifaceted portrait of a magnificent rebel and true artist.
