Expose Her

Lena Chen and Molly Baber - Expose Her

She was one of the first victims of so-called "revenge porn". In 2007, her boyfriend posted intimate photos of her on the Internet, resulting in years of stalking, cyber-bullying and mental anguish for feminist artist and blogger Lena Chen. Years later in Berlin, she has created a new life as her alter ego, Elle Peril. Working as a nude model, spoken word artist and performer, she attempts to regain sovereignty over her body and her identity.

When au pair and photographer Molly Baber arrives to Berlin and discovers Lena Chen on the verge of a mental breakdown, a friendship forms based on mutual artistic endeavours and longing for estranged lovers.

Witnessed by the queer female gaze, this jointly produced documemoir challenges the power relations between men and women, artist and muse, voyeur and exhibitionist, perpetrator and victim. As each character grapples for control of the narrative, Expose Her reveals how lies of omission can conceal the darkest of truths.
