GREAT FALLS - A documentary and photo book about the issues in the life of Montana's exotic dancers is currently underway.
The name of the project is called "Stripped," and film crews have been hard at work shooting throughout the Treasure State.
Melissa Bring and Fleur Philips, both Montana natives, visited MTN News on Saturday and talked with reporter DaVonte McKenith about the project, including their reason for undertaking it, some of the challenges they have faced, and when the documentary is expected to be finished.
Here is a brief summary of their project: "We will spend four weeks at five different strip-clubs in Montana, featuring one dancer per club. The production will follow each dancer, capturing their life outside of work, including their personality, desires, and needs. The multimedia aspect of this project allows the dancers to be heard and seen in a way that exposes more of their soul than skin."
