Mathilde’s Misses


“Mathilde’s Misses” is a documentary by Pieter De Vos, that tells the story of three ladies participating in the world’s first beauty pageant for homeless women.

Mathilde organizes the world’s very first Miss Homeless pageant. Fifteen women compete for the main prize: one year rent-free housing. Pascale hopes to win the house, in order to regain the custody over her 7 year old daughter.

Why free?
Mathilde’s Misses wants to be a tool for creating solidarity with people suffering the violence of poverty.
It is released under a creative commons licence so it can freely roam the world.
Why? We don’t like Theodore Dalrymple and we feel closed copyright is sooo last century.
