Yellow Box

2006 - 53 min - Noir & Blanc - Taiwan

Scantily dressed in a bra and miniskirt the taiwanese girls sell betel nuts in glass shops along the roads and motorways. They are the sales tools, and they need to arouse the customer's taste. A table, a high chair, a mirror, a fridge and dimmed neon lighting. The saleswomen sit inside an aquarium for up to twelve hours a day.
The film's black-and-white images depict the work of these women. The body is often reduced to fragments: it is only the vehicle of a secondary sexuality, a sexuality intended to influence customers.
