Does everybody have the right to be beautiful? Miss Landmine is an art project that raises awareness of landmine issues and challenges traditional perceptions of disabled people. On the heels of a successful event in Africa, theater director Morten Traavik has now turned to Cambodia for the next edition of his controversial beauty pageant for landmine survivors. Faced with cries of sexism, exploitation, and a conservative Buddhist culture, Traavik seeks out new expressions of beauty in an increasingly hostile and repressive environment.
