The documentary shows snippets of the lives of sex workers from Eastern Europe and Africa who came to Germany in search of a better life. LOVEMOBIL, winner of the German Documentary Film Award 2020, portrays a microcosm that describes a society at the hardest end of globalized capitalism.

If you are unable to attend the live screening, you can watch LOVEMOBIL on your own time from February 21-28.
