Vixen Academy: How To Be a Bitch (0+)

Russia, 2007, colour, 30 min.
Director: Alina Rudnitskaya
There were times, when «bitch» had negative meaning. But today it has become a real brand. «Bitch» has become an example to follow for modern woman, an ideal image of our days. Most of women older 15 try to learn how to be a bitch. Who is a vixen, modern bitch? How to become successful women? What does it mean being a woman? What is «women’s nature» and «women’s spirit»? Is it possible for a woman to succeed in this life without coming across the ethic borders?
