Maya Goded has been interested in minorities, in female sexuality, and violence against women and prostitution. From 1998 to 2001, the Mexican photographer affiliated with the Magnum agency, realized the series Plaza de la Soledad, immersed in the community of prostitutes in the neighborhood of La Merced, Mexico City.
She returned to film these women in 2013 to make her first documentary. It is the fruit of twenty years of work by Goded Maya.
The photographic series was awarded with the W. Eugene Smith prize in 2001 and the film was also presented in the official selection of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. She introduces it this weekend in France, at the Viva Mexico festival.
