Natalia Leite and Alexandra Roxo go Gonzo as they pose as strippers and experience something that can be best described as a Marina Abramovic performance crossed with a bizarro episode of Wife Swap directed by David Lynch’s daughters, set in the type of place where a one eyed guy who shot himself in the head dispenses meditation advice to two naked women.
According to their website that has the same name as their production company, PURPLE MILK, they have recently directed three projects with Vice Media: a documentary called Serrano Shoots Cuba, a pilot for a show called Every Woman (seen above) and a holiday special about Nicola Formichetti’s NYC Christmas pop up shop.
They are currently in post-production for their eleven episode web show, Be Here Now-ish (February 2014 release), and in development for a feature film called Bare. They also co-direct music videos and commercials.
* This is a super random post, but I happened to watch this last night and haven’t been able to get the images and the stories out of my head all day. I found this video, from a youtube subscription to VICE, and this was one of the latest videos that they dropped and it had a pretty appealing title. Life as a TRUCK-STOP Stripper. Not so much because I thought there would be any T&A on it, its youtube, but more so because when I think about it, I guess, yeah, I wonder what it would be like to take a dive into the life of a chick that works as a stripper at a truck stop.
But then, after about 5 minutes in, it becomes less about the chance of seeing some Brazilian side boob and more about the stories that are being told. I love how this was shot, I love the idea of this, I love what this series can be.
So, I was looking for a way to shoehorn this video on to IME, and I decided to get a little bit of investigation on and I found out that one of the girls is a vegan. There you go. I can post it here.
Make sure you check out the girls twitter and their Facebook page and the vote ‘thumbs up’ on the video because its good and we need to see more. Thanks ladies.
Check out this full length article and write up at www.vice.com of the ladies after their experience.
