Everything's Better Than A Hooker (2017)

55m | English | Ovidie

Eva-Maree Kullander Smith was 27 when she was murdered by the father of her children during a supervised visit arranged by social services. Previously, despite his violent past, he was awarded sole custody after social services learnt that she had previously worked as an escort. 


Determined to win them back, Eva-Maree became a campaigner for sex workers’ rights, challenging Sweden’s policies and attitudes towards prostitution. For nearly three years, while her ex partner continued to threaten her and refused to allow any access to the children, she did everything she could to prove she was a good parent and to fight the stigmatisation of sex workers.


A story of abuse of power in a country that claims to have eradicated prostitution.
