It's "Orange Is the New Black" Week here on BTR, and I have a really unique, engaging topic and guest on the show for you today. There is a growing trend amongst international women's prisons to host annual beauty pageants; Russian-born, U.S.-based filmmaker Irina Vodar was behind a 2007 documentary titled Miss Gulag that looks at just such a pageant, held by inmates at a Siberian prison camp. The incarcerated women design and construct three different costumes for three phases of competition, each with the hope of winning the crown title. On today's show, you'll hear Irina talk about the women in Miss Gulag, why she felt compelled to tell their stories, the positive impact of the beauty pageant on their lives and transformations, her take on Russian fashion culture, and her latest documentary, "The Cycle," a deeply personal exploration of a socially taboo topic. Plus, a playlist full of great new folk and punk from artists like Tica Douglas, Neko Case, Summer Cannibals, and more. So suit up and tune in! It's time to fall in line for fashion with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
