Audio Tracks 

In the streets of Geneva, a stationary bus is open three nights a week for any person practising prostiution, regularly or occasionally. Street sexworkers come in to get free condoms, seringues and other risk reduction material, but mostly they come to talk and exchange. Welcomed by social workers, nurses and/or cultural mediators whos motto is the non-judgnmental attitude, they come to and stay for a few minutes in a warm environement before going back to work in the streets.
This film is the outcome of an audio-visual work, conducted within a global research on prostitution at the Departement of Sociology of Geneva University.
